Ravindra Jadeja gets A grade
Team India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has done well for the last few times and has contributed in three formats. In such a situation, it was expected that he would be promoted in the BCCI Annual Contract List, but it did not happen.
Ravindra Jadeja has been a part of Team India for over a decade, but failed to make it to the A + grade. In this category, BCCI has included only 3 players who play Test, ODI and T20 in all three formats.
