Ravindra Jadeja was able to return to the ODI squad after a long time. Jadeja last played in the coloured jerseys in the Windies tour. However, he was ignored for the upcoming series as he could not get going in the limited overs. Meanwhile, Jadeja was finally rewarded as he got back into the squad. India had tried Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal who did well for them.

On the other hand, there were three changes made to the Indian squad. Hardik Pandya suffered an acute back injury and Deepak Chahar was called in as his replacement. Meanwhile, Shardul Thakur was sidelined due to a hip injury whereas Axar was ruled out due to finger index injury.

Thus, Siddharth Kaul was also added to India’s squad for the ongoing Asia Cup.

Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja was at the top of his game in the fifth and final Test match against England. Jadeja scored a fine 86 in the first innings to keep India in the hunt. Furthermore, Jadeja was able to contribute with the ball. The southpaw spinner also scalped five wickets on his return to the Test side.

Therefore, Jadeja was able to come up with a fine performance. Subsequently, the Saurashtra all-rounder was rewarded for good form with both bat as well as the ball.
