If media reports are to be believed, India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who made a stunning comeback to Test cricket in the recently concluded Test series against South Africa, is set to make a comeback to India’s limited-overs side that will tour Australia next month. Ishant Sharma, who has been in good form in Test in the last two Test series, is also set to make a comeback to limited-overs cricket. Beside these two, Mohammed Shami, who was recovering after a knee surgery, is almost certain to make the cut, unless any fitness issue pops in.
Yuvraj Singh might push the selectors for a spot in the national team after his scintillating show in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
