The two senior players were seen at the NCA with India U-19 captain Yash Dhull in his social media posts. The U-19 team is currently camping at the NCA ahead of the Asia Cup beginning in the UAE from December 23.

Rohit, who was called ODI captain recently replacing Virat Kohli, was to take a trip to South Africa as vice-captain of the Test team for the series starting on December 26 but a hamstring injury throughout training ruled him out.

His anticipated healing time is between three to four weeks.

India ‘A’ captain Priyank Panchal was named in location of Rohit in the Test team, which reached South Africa on Thursday for the series.

The senior opener, who took charge as T20I captain against New Zealand last month, is anticipated to be available to lead the team for the ODI leg of the South Africa trip, which is to take location in January.

Jadeja has been eliminated of the South Africa tour due to a knee injury which he sustained during the home New Zealand Test series last month.

He might take a longer time to recuperate from his injury.
