ICC WTC Final: Ravindra Jadeja recalls memory with MS Dhoni ahead of Team India’s tour of England – Virat Kohli’s Team India is gearing up for the much-awaited final of the ICC World Test Championship against New Zealand which will take place in Southampton, England starting from June 18. The Indian squad for the WTC final and India’s tour of England has been announced and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja made comeback in the side. Ahead of the England tour, Jadeja shared a photo with former India captain and current captain of Jadeja’s IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni.
Jadeja took to Twitter and wrote, “Imagine your own caption Thinking face #throwback #englandtour.”

In the photo, Jadeja can be seen wearing a blue blazer with the BCCI logo on the chest. Just behind Jadeja, you can see MS Dhoni wearing the same blazer. In the background, current India captain Virat Kohli can also be seen. Jadeja must be trying to draw some inspiration from the photo ahead of the WTC final.
Meanwhile, Jadeja began his quarantine at the team hotel in Mumbai before embarking on India tour of England on June 2.
“Journey started. #quarantine #mumbai,” Jadeja wrote on Instagram along with a couple of pictures looking dapper in a red T-shirt, blue lower and a hat.
It is notable that Ravindra Jadeja has made a comeback to the squad after missing the home series against England due to a thumb injury that he sustained during the India tour of Australia.

The allrounder was phenomenal with the ball and bat in phase 1 of IPL where he helped MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) emerge victorious in 5 out of 7 matches. He also struck 37 runs in an over against RCB and dominated the field with his sharp fielding. He is expected to play a key role in the inaugural ICC WTC Final.
