He has been out of action after the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur after he sustained a right forearm injury, which meant he missed out on the three-match Test and ODI series in South Africa.

The left-hander has still hasn’t recovered from the injury and hasn’t been included in the limited-overs series against visiting West Indies, starting from February 6. His recovery and return is still awaited.

Whilst the Saurashtra all-rounder is recovering, Star Sports Tamil took to Twitter and asked the Chennai Super Kings fans to make their own playing XI. In that tweet, Jadeja was slotted at number eight among others. The 33-year-old replied saying that he should be slotted in at No. 11.

“No 8 too early for me ! Put me @ 11,” the Saurashtra all-rounder tweeted.
