"Mr. Jadeja suffered a side strain and has been adviced rest," said the BCCI in a statement.

Ashwin had missed the recently concluded Deodhar Trophy as he was adviced a week's rest.

"He has now recovered and is declared fit to play," the statement added.

Both Ashwin and Jadeja remain an integral part of the Indian Test team but have lost their limited overs spot to Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
