BCCI announces replacement for Ravindra Jadeja

“His replacement, Axar Patel was earlier named as one of the standbys in the squad and will join the team in Dubai soon,” the BCCI said

Team India will miss the services of the star all-rounder who gave an all-round performance against Pakistan in the Asia Cup Opener.

His important 36 and 52-run partnerships with Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya respectively brought India right back in the chase.

In the match against Hong Kong also he did very well with the bowl, although did not get a chance to bat

It was his 4 overs 1 for 15 in the middle that choked the Hong Kong batting unit despite making good use of the powerplay while chasing 193.

India will now take on either Pakistan or Hong Kong in their first match of the Super 4 stage on Sunday, September 4.
