The highly anticipated five-game series is all set to begin on January 25th in Hyderabad. With the Test series against England looming, Ravindra Jadeja, the talented all-rounder of Team India, and his wife, Rivaba, sought the blessings of Goddess Ashapura at Kutch Mata Na Madh. Their heartwarming image quickly went viral on social media.
Jadeja’s inclusion in the spin-heavy squad for the first two Tests, as announced by the BCCI selectors, has added to the excitement. It is almost certain that the left-arm spinner will play in the first two matches, partnering with the formidable Ravichandran Ashwin. Axar Patel also stands as a potential third spinner, adding depth to the team’s lineup.
Unfortunately, Jadeja had limited participation in the recent series in South Africa, featuring in only one out of the two Tests. His absence in the opening Test at Centurion due to a back spasm proved costly for the visitors as they suffered a resounding defeat. However, it was the loss at Centurion that led to India losing their No.1 ranking.
