The National Cricket Academy has given the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja permission to play in the first test of the series in Nagpur against Australia. He may now join the rest of the team in Nagpur, where they will hold a brief camp to get ready for the Test and the series, according to the NCA's issuance of a fitness report on his preparedness to play on Wednesday (February 1).
Jadeja last played for India in the Asia Cup in Dubai in August 2022. He needed surgery to treat a knee ailment he had there, which kept him from working for five months. He was unable to attend the T20 World Cup in Australia, and although being initially scheduled to join the tour of Bangladesh, he was ultimately pulled.
Last week, the 34-year-old made his comeback to competitive play in a Ranji Trophy match for Saurashtra versus Tamil Nadu. He bowled 41.1 overs in that game and collected a seven-for in the second inning, demonstrating his capacity for Test match loads.
NCA keeping an eye on Iyer's health
India's chances in Nagpur are undoubtedly improved by Jadeja's comeback, but the hosts will begin the major series without their effective middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer.
Iyer promptly reported to the NCA for rehabilitation treatment after being forced to withdraw from the New Zealand series due to a back ailment in an effort to recover in time for the start of the Australia Tests. Iyer is scheduled to remain at the NCA in Bengaluru and continue working on his rehabilitation program in an effort to be available for the second Test in Delhi, which begins on February 17, even though those keeping track of his fitness status have not yet definitively ruled him out of the Nagpur game.
