Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the Test series against England as he was scheduled for thumb surgery. The left-hander broke his thumb while batting in the third Test against Australia and thus was ruled out of the fourth Test. He then went for treatment at NCA followed by his surgery which ruled him out of the Test series against England as well. Eventually, he was ruled out from the T20I series as well after missing the Tests.
Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja has resumed training to get him fit again. H shared a video of him doing the drills in the gym with the video captioned as “Hustling On #comingbackstronger #trainhard,”.

In the last four Tests India have played without Jadeja, they have gone on to win three of them, one against Australia and two versus England at home in the ongoing four-Test series. Axar Patel, replacing Jajdeja in the side, has grabbed the opportunity with both hands, picking up three five-wicket hauls in his first two Test matches.
Meanwhile, if England beat India in the Test match, Australia would play the finals of the WTC against New Zealand who have already reached the finals. The trans-Tasmanian rivals are currently playing a five-match T20I series with the Kiwis leading the five-match series 2-1.
