India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has welcomed all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja with a funny Instagram story. Jadeja is returning to international after November 2021 when he got injured after the first Test against New Zealand. The injury forced him to miss out on the tour of South Africa. He also missed out on the white-ball series against the West Indies at home this month.
The left-hander will play the three-match T20I and two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. The first game of the T20I series will be played on February 24. Ahead of the game, Chahal decided to click the picture of the all-rounder and opening batter Ruturaj Gaikwad. Gaikwad was unaware of the leg-spinner’s mischief but the 31-year-old was posing for the photo. However, he must not be aware of the hilarious filter.

In the meantime, the Men In Blue will be without the services of key players. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have been rested while Deepak Chahar and Suryakumar Yadav have been ruled out due to injuries. On the other hand, Jadeja said that he is feeling good to be back in the Indian team after two months. “Good feeling to be back in the Indian team. Really looking forward to playing the T20 and Test series,” Jadeja said in a video posted by BCCI.
“I am feeling so good that finally after two months, I will be playing for India. I was keen to do my rehab properly. I have been working hard on my fitness in NCA. I am very excited for the series. I am playing after more than two months. I have been practising bowling, batting in Bengaluru. So I was in touch. Today, I felt very good after coming here for my first practice session.”
