India gets a blow as another star player will miss first Test against South Africa.
Last week, Shikhar Dhawan was reported injured. BCCI gave the fans a good news about him stating that he is fit to play. This means the third opener KL Rahul will have to wait for his opportunity.
But, there is a new entry in India’s casualty ward. The news is that Ravindra Jadeja is down with a viral illness.
It remains a mystery whether he will be in the XI for the first test match at Cape Town starting this Friday.
BCCI tweeted about the same:
NEWS: #TeamIndia opener Shikhar Dhawan fit and available for selection for the 1st Test against South Africa. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja down with viral illness #FreedomSeries #SAvIND.

If Jadeja does not get fit to play, his spinning partner Ravichandran Ashwin becomes a surety.
The Indian team will hope that the Jadeja gets fit to play as he is one of the sure starters in the XI. On the other hand, the news that Shikhar is available is a sigh of relief for India.
