Virat Kohli said on the eve of the first Test, “The reason was basically to match someone with Jadeja’s skills, which Axar brings to all three departments of the game.” Kohli said, “That was the reason behind choosing him. It comes directly into our plans. Because jaddu was not available, it is often preferred because it brings in the same kind of discipline.”
