Sen and Shahbaz were called up as replacements; it is yet unknown whether Jadeja would play in the Test series.

The forthcoming three-match ODI series in Bangladesh will not feature all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja since he has not yet fully recovered from the knee surgery he underwent in September.

The Bengal all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed has been selected to replace Jadeja in the ODI squad that will play its first match on December 4 at Mirpur. 

One other change involves the absence of Uttar Pradesh left-arm seamer Yash Dayal because of a lower back condition. Kuldeep Sen, a fast bowler from Madhya Pradesh, will take his position.

Sen and Shahbaz were both scheduled to go to New Zealand for the three-match ODI series that starts on Friday in Auckland. They will now skip that series and go to Bangladesh in its place.

In the present Vijay Hazare Trophy, Shahbaz has been in excellent form, taking 11 wickets in six matches at an economy rate of 4.87 over 51.2 overs. Additionally, he has made two half-centuries with the bat lower in the order. Sen, on the other hand, has taken 18 wickets in six games, with a best of five for 36 against Punjab, making him the leading wicket-taker in the championship up until the group rounds.

When the squad was announced, Jadeja’s membership had been contingent on his physical condition. The Uttar Pradesh left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar may join the tour party if he is not prepared to play in the next two-Test series.

Due to his outstanding performances since winning the 2019–20 Ranji Trophy, Saurabh has been playing on the periphery of the national squad since February of last year. He most recently played for India A against New Zealand, when he picked up nine wickets over the course of the series to aid the home team in a 1-0 victory. He was instrumental in UP’s run to the Ranji Trophy semifinals before that.

Saurabh has a remarkable aggregate of 58 wickets overall over 12 Ranji Trophy games from two completed seasons. One of Saurabh’s USPs, in the opinion of a member of the departing selection committee, is his capacity to bowl extended spells and spin away tirelessly.

Jadeja, 33, was forced to withdraw from India’s Asia Cup campaign after the group stages in order to get surgery for a chronic knee problem. Jadeja missed the whole T20 World Cup, despite Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India, having earlier believed that he may recuperate in time to participate in India’s World Cup campaign.

Jadeja’s right knee has been bothering him for some time; in fact, he missed the ODI portion of India’s tour of the West Indies in July due to an ailment to the same joint. Since then, he has been receiving treatment at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy.

Jadeja eventually made the ODI and Test squads for the tour of Bangladesh, but she will now be absent from at least the limited-overs matches, which are set for December 4, 7, and 10.
