Well, you guys are quite aware of Ravindra Jadeja’s ban. So, if you need to balance the team, some changes are necessary. He will not take any further participation in the ongoing series. But, his invaluable knock in Colombo test has shriven all the water marks out. He scored an unbeaten 70 runs and took 7 wickets in the same match. And now, he was charged with breaching article 2.2.8 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Player and Player Support Personnel.
The story started on the third day of the test match when Jadeja intentionally threw a ball to the wicket keeper. It just slightly missed the batsman, Dimuth Karunaratne. As a result, he faces three demerit points in his own stats. Last year also, due to same behavior he has accustomed three demerits. And hence the result is ultimate suspension for a match.
According to ICC, if one, within a span of 24 months reach 6 demerit points, then he should go for a match suspension. And if he reaches 8 or more demerit points within 2 year span then he should go for 4 match suspension. Can you believe?
Though the problem is not so acute. This is because, the last win. With the last win, India locked their series for themselves. And hence, with some changes in the side India can make out the game with ease.
Kuldeep can be a replacement for Jadeja?
Yes, you heard it right. With his fabulous test debut against Australia and the recent supervising game against West Indies, you guys need to consider him for a replacement. Though, no left arm spinner was taken in the last two tests. But yes, it is said that the decision was a forced one. Virat Kohli is quite interested to incorporate this guy to his side. Because he creates a good ambiance on-field by putting pressure on the opponents.

Let’s see if Virat Kohli looks for this Chinaman bowler or go for traditional choices. This may include Ishant and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. These two guys are also in the line. They will also work hard and fast to get a chance in the squad. That’s for obvious.
