The Board of Control for Cricket in India shared a video of the trio cutting the cake while the staff members and teammates singing the birthday song.
Is Jadeja completely fit now ?
Good news is Ravindra Jadeja is fit and rejoined the Indian side ahead of the Adelaide Test against Australia on Thursday. Jaddu had suffered a concussion and hamstring injury in the 1st T20I and was ruled out for the remainder of the limited-over series. He was replaced by pacer Shardul Thakur. But he now has been declared fit and was seen cutting his birthday cake along with teammate Kuldeep Yadav and bowling coach Bharat Arun in the dressing room of Adelaide Oval.
Jadeja, before his injury, was in great form and played an instrumental role in India’s third ODI and first T20I win. His return will be a big boost for the Test squad and give a much-needed batting depth. Although his chances are slim to play the series opener, he will sure be an option whenever need be.
