New Delhi, Oct 19 All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on Monday was recalled to India’s Test squad after a gap of nearly 14 months as selectors desisted from making wholesale changes
to the 1 6-member squad for the first two matches against South Africa.
The 26-year-old Jadeja was the only change in the Test squad that had last played against Sri Lanka in an away series.
The selectors also made just one change in the ODI squad, bringing in paceman Sreenath Arvind for Umesh Yadav.
The announcement of the team was made by the BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur after a meeting of the selection committee headed by Sandeep Patil here.
