The Test series between India and Australia will start in Gaba from December 3. Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra believes that Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya will not make it to the playing eleven in this series. He replied to a question on his YouTube channel.

A fan asked Akash about the upcoming Test series, in the Test series in Australia, do Pandya and Jadeja fit together in Team India’s playing eleven? Responding to this, Akash said, “I don’t think either of them will play. He said, Hardik has back injury and I don’t think he will be able to make a place in the team.”

He further said Hardik has not started bowling yet, he has not played one-day internationals, he can play in T20 but will you feed him a Test match after playing in IPL. Are they ready for Test cricket, do they want to play Test cricket now? I don’t think he will play the first Test match in Australia.
