With India having three options in debutant off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, left-arm spinner Akshar Patel and left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, there is hardly a need for a fourth specialist spinner in the team.

The chances of veteran all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to be fully fit ahead of the Bangladesh Test series starting on December 14 in Chittagong are slim. This information was provided by the source of Indian Cricket Board. With India having three options in debutant off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, left-arm spinner Akshar Patel and left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, there is hardly a need for a fourth specialist spinner in the team. If the team management wants a spinner all-rounder like Jadeja, then the option would be India A bowler Saurabh Kumar.

A BCCI source said on condition of anonymity: “Jadeja has visited the NCA on several occasions for check-ups and rehab. Right now, he is unlikely to be fit for the Bangladesh series. However, the previous selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma kept him in the team with the condition of regaining fitness.Saurabh was part of the Test team during the series against Sri Lanka earlier this year.He took five wickets against New Zealand A in the ‘A’ Test series in Bangalore.
