Ravindra Jadeja Ruled Out Of Bangladesh ODIs, Replaced By Shahbaz Ahmed
Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the Bangladesh ODI series, with Shahbaz Ahmed coming into the team as his replacement.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced multiple changes in the India squad for the upcoming tour of Bangladesh. Notably, Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the ODI assignment, with Shahbaz Ahmed coming in as his replacement. Even Yash Dayal is out of the series, with Kuldeep Sen being picked up as his replacement. Dayal was suffering with a lower back issue and was hence ruled out of the series while Jadeja hasn't yet recovered from his knee injury and will continue to be under the supervision of the BCCI Medical team.
Kuldeep and Shahbaz, the two replacements, were initially named in the squad for the 3-match ODI series in New Zealand starting 25th November in Auckland. As they have now been picked for the Bangladesh tour, they were pulled out of the Kiwi assignment. The BCCI hasn't named any replacement for the duo in India's ODI squad which is currently in New Zealand.
