Since Virat Kohli has come out from the same team, Kohli also has no two ways about the quality bowler that Jadeja is and has backed him to the hilt.Jadeja along with Ashwin has been lethal throughout India’s home Test season and will be crucial yet again in India’s upcoming season home and away.Jadeja has been banned for the third Test against Sri Lanka at Pallekele for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct when the all-rounder dangerously threw the ball at Malinda Pushpakumara and the ball missed Dimuth Karunaratne narrowly on the third day of the second Test at Colombo.advertisementlast_img
