Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has quashed reports of Test retirement with his latest post on Twitter. There were a few reports that the southpaw was contemplating Test retirement to prolong his Test career. Jadeja along with a few other key players is ruled out of the upcoming Test series against South Africa. 

Jadeja, who missed the second Test against New Zealand in Mumbai, is not part of the squad for the South Africa series also. He had suffered a forearm injury during the first Test against the Kiwis in Kanpur and had to sit out of the final encounter. He along with Shubman Gill, Axar Patel and Rohit Sharma will miss the Test series due to injury. 

Meanwhile, with two posts on Twitter, he has lashed out at false reports of his test retirement. He made these posts earlier today to give a hint that he will continue to play Test cricket. 

His first post was a picture that read ” Fake Friends Believe In Rumours. Real Friends Believe In You”. 

His second post had a picture of him with the Indian jersey with the caption ” Long Way To Go”
