The third and last match of the ODI series between the India National Cricket Team and West Indies National Cricket Team is being played at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad on Wednesday, July 27.

India National Cricket Team made one change to the playing XI in the game as Prasidh Krishna came in for Avesh Khan. However, Jadeja, who many thought would be available for the third game, was not fully fit and was unavailable for selection. Also, the BCCI asserted that Jadeja’s progress will continue to be monitored by the medical team.

“Ravindra Jadeja was not available for selection for the 3rd ODI since he is still not 100 percent fit.The medical team will continue to monitor his progress,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted.

Notably, Shreyas Iyer was appointed as Shikhar Dhawan’s deputy in the absence of Jadeja for the three-match ODI series against the West Indies.
