Ravindra Jadeja also has not played any game in the longest format since picking up a hand injury during the 3rd Test against Australia earlier this year in Sydney. He missed the 4-match Test series against England at home wherein Axar Patel took his place in the last 3 Tests.

Jadeja’s teammate, R Ashwin is at the 4th spot on the all-rounders’ charts as he had a memorable outing with the bat against England, hitting a hundred at his hometown in Chennai.
