BCCI said, “If a player gets hits on the head or he receives head injury he should be rested for 10-12 days.” So that he won’t play the second practice match starting from 11 December. India Team Management has to play the all-rounder in the test series without practice match.
Commentators in India-Australia A team’s practice match told that Jadeja has to be away from game for atleast 3 weeks. BCCI haven’t declared anything officially.

He has scored 1 century and 14 half-centuries till the date.
