Chetan Sharma-led new selection committee picked Jadeja only for the Test series against Australia. But they put a condition that, he will only be selected if he clears the fitness test. Unconvinced, BCCI asked Jadeja to play in Ranji Trophy and regain match fitness as he has not played for nearly 5 months.

“He did pass the initial fitness test. But the NCA still believes he is not yet at 100%. Considering his history of serious injuries, the selectors did not want to rush a return. The Australia series will be far more important than the NewZealand series. That is why he was not considered for the white-ball series,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.
