New Delhi: A four-match Test series between India and England has started at the Chapak ground in Chennai from Friday. On the first day of the first Test, the bowlers of Team India were seen batting with the batsmen of England. Team India got only three wickets on the pitch throughout the day which was helpful for the spin. Seeing the poor performance of India’s bowlers, fans on social media started remembering Ravindra Jadeja.
Ravindra Jadeja was injured during the Sydney Test in Australia. Ravindra Jadeja has a fractured toe and will not be available for the Test series against England. In the absence of Ravindra Jadeja, Team India came out with three spin bowlers.
Having said that missing Shami and Jadeja. Watching them bowl in India is great pleasure.

On the pitch that helped the spin, Ashwin, Nadeem and Sundar bowled in 56 overs and took just one wicket. Sundar gave away 55 runs in 12 overs with an economy rate of 4.6 while Nadeem scored 69 runs in 20 overs.
When Ravindra Jadeja started trending on social media, Indian bowlers were seen failing miserably in the Chennai Test. One fan wrote directly that the Indian team is missing the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammad Shamini.
