The first match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia will be played in Nagpur on 9 February. Both the teams have started preparations for this series.

Let us tell you that Kuldeep Yadav has also been included in the Indian team for the first two matches of the Test series.

Kuldeep continues to be in fine form, impressing everyone with his performances in ODIs and T20Is, but still he is unlikely to make it to the playing XI in the first Test match to be played in Nagpur. Let us know which player can be seen in the playing-XI in place of Kuldeep.

IND vs AUS: It is difficult for Kuldeep Yadav to get a chance in the first test

Actually, Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will return in the Test series against Australia (IND vs AUS 1st Test), in such a situation he will be seen batting at number 6 for Team India. Jadeja will strengthen Team India with the ball as well as with the bat.

Ravindra Jadeja recently performed brilliantly in the Ranji Trophy. In such a situation, Kuldeep Yadav is finding it difficult to get a chance in the first Test match against Australia.

Let us tell you that Kuldeep is running in excellent form at the moment. He took a total of 8 wickets in the 2022 Test series against Bangladesh. After this, Kuldeep took a total of 8 wickets in T20I and ODI against New Zealand.

IND vs AUS: Ravindra Jadeja made a great comeback after 6 months

Ravindra Jadeja, who has not played for India since August 2021, recently captained Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy. Jadeja made a strong comeback in the second innings against Tamil Nadu, taking seven wickets.

In such a situation, Jadeja, who has taken 242 wickets in 60 Tests, will have a great chance to complete 250 wickets in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
