India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is likely to call it quits in Test cricket to prolong his limited-overs career. The 33-year-old is not part of the Test team for the upcoming tour of South Africa. He suffered an injury on his forearm and also did not play the second and final Test match against New Zealand.

According to a report in Dainik Jagran, Jadeja’s teammate revealed that he is contemplating taking retirement from the longest format of the game. Often the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, or more recently Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant have managed to grab eyeballs due to their match-winning abilities. However, in the past two years or so, Jadeja’s all-round skills have grown leaps and bounds

There was never a doubt about his bowling abilities but the question remained about his batting prowess and his contribution in the lower order. For the past two years, he has ticked that box and even played ahead of Ravi Ashwin for India on away tours.

Jadeja adds a lot of depth to the team. So far, he has played in 57 Tests for India and scored 2195 runs at an average of 33.76. Jadeja has also taken 232 wickets at an average below 25.
