Veteran India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been missing from action since September 2022, after he picked up a knee injury during the Asia Cup. Following which, he underwent a knee surgery and went to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for rehabilitation. However, the 34-year-old all-rounder, who has been named in India’s squad for the first two Tests of the four-match series against Australia, is currently in Chennai with Team Saurashtra for their final league stage of the Ranji Trophy against Tamil Nadu on Tuesday.
Jadeja, who is also a prominent part of the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, shared two-worded tweet on his arrival in the city, which left the CSK fans excited. Jadeja wrote, “Vanakkam Chennai.”
