April 9 (CRICKETNMORE) - After missing the first two matches in IPL 2017, Gujarat Lions all-rounder and World's no.1 test bowler Ravindra Jadeja is expecting to join the team in the franchise's next game against Rising Pune Supergiant on 14th April.
Jadeja who was advised rest by BCCI's medical team in the aftermath of India's taxing 13-Test home season.
The news was confirmed by Brad Hodge, the team's head coach, in an interview during Sunday's clash against Sunrisers. "I'm not sure about Bravo but Jadeja comes back for us in the next game," he said.
"Without Jadeja... it's probably hurt us a little bit there. He's a player you can't actually replace. He bats, bowls and field. Hopefully we get Jaddu back in, it might make a difference"
Its a big news for Gujarat Lions who have lost both their matches in IPL and Jadeja's inclusion in the team can be a big boost for the team.
