Pujara, Jadeja, Ashwin, Vijay likely to play Ranji opener

New Delhi, Sep 29 (Cricketnmore) The start of the new domestic season appears to be a star-studded affair with India regulars Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay giving their nods to play for their respective state sides in the first round of the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy matches.

India's Test batting mainstay Pujara was named the skipper of the 15-member Saurashtra side, that includes Jadeja, for their opening four-day encounter against Haryana at Lahli from October 6.

Meanwhile, Ashwin and Vijay are also likely to feature in Tamil Nadu's opening clash against Andhra Pradesh at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium after the duo confirmed their availability to their state association, according to an espncricinfo report.

While Ashwin has just finished his assignment, by securing the Division Two title for English county side Worcestershire, Pujara is expected to return to India after completing his county commitments with Nottinghamshire.

The Chennai tweaker aggregated 214 runs at an average of 42.8, including an 82 in the 137-run win over Durham besides finishing with 20 wickets, with one of his two five-fors coming against Durham.

Pujara, on the other hand with aggregated 333 runs from 12 innings at an average of 27.75 so far for Worcestershire.

Meanwhile, both Ashwin and left-arm spinner Jadeja's availability for their Ranji sides will depend on their selection in the India side for the three-match T20I series against Australia beginning October 7.

The spin duo were rotated out of India's squad for the One-day International (ODI) series against Sri Lanka and Australia.

Vijay, meanwhile, came back to action in the just-concluded Duleep Trophy after recuperating from his surgery for a wrist injury suffered during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in March.

The right-handed opener played for the India Green side in the pink-ball tournament, where he picked up five wickets but managed to score only 17 runs.

Commenting on the squad, National Selector James Whitaker, said: "A tour of Australia is the ultimate test for our squad. We have provided Joe Root and Trevor Bayliss with a well-balanced squad with options in all areas."

"After a successful summer, having won the Test series against South Africa and the West Indies, there is real competition for places and we have selected a squad that will work hard and compete against Australia, aiming to win the Ashes," he added.

In addition to the current full-time members of staff, former New Zealand fast bowler Shane Bond was appointed fast bowling consultant and will be part of the England management up to the end of the second Test in Australia. 

Former England One-day captain Paul Collingwood will take a coaching role during the Test series and the One-day Internationals (ODI) against Australia. County side Kent's head coach, Matt Walker, will assist England for the T20 tri-series against Australia and New Zealand.

The first Test will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane from November 23-27.

Patel replaces Jadeja for last two ODIs vs Australia

New Delhi, Sep 24 - The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday included Axar Patel in place of fellow left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja in the 15-man national squad for the last two One-Day Internationals (ODI) against Australia.

Jadeja had not played the first three matches of the ongoing five-match series. India have already taken an unassailable 3-0 in the series following their five-wicket win in the third ODI at Indore on Sunday.

The BCCI also decided to rest Jadeja's regular spin partner Ravichandran Ashwin and had ruled him out of the squad even before the start of the current series. 

Ashwin is playing county cricket in England at present.

In the absence of the star spin pair, the young duo of left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal have given a good account of themselves against Australia.

While Kuldeep has taken seven wickets in the three matches, Chahal has scalped six.

Patel had played his last ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo on August 31 where he had returned figures of 1/55 in his 10 overs. 

The squad:

Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel.
