Jadeja is leading Saurashtra in their last group league match with Cheteshwar Pujara and regular captain Jaydev Unadkat rested ahead of the marquee four-match rubber, beginning at Nagpur on February 9.
The all-rounder, who pulled out after injuring his knee during the Asia Cup last September, is also part of the Indian squad for the first two Tests but his inclusion in the 17-man squad is subject to fitness.
Opting to bat, Tamil Nadu lost the wicket of Narayan Jagadeesan in the second over of the day. But thereafter, opener Sai Sudharsan, twins Baba Aparajith and Baba Indrajith steadied the ship with identical scores of 45.
Indrajith remained unbeaten with Vijay Shankar giving him company on 11 at the other end.
At CCI, Maharashtra rode on Kedar Jadhav‘s second century in five innings to overcome an early scare and post 314 for six against Mumbai.
Maharashtra lost Pavan Shah before they could open their account while their No. 3, Naushad Shaikh, also fell cheaply for 12 with the team’s score reading 23/2. But Jadhav salvaged his side with his 128 from 168 balls (18×4, 1×6) and a 105-run partnership with Siddhesh Veer (48).
After Jadhav’s departure, Saurabh Nawale produced a fine rearguard action at No. 7, scoring a gritty 56 not out.
Brief scores: In Chennai: Tamil Nadu 183/4; 90 overs (Sai Sudharsan 45, Baba Aparajith 45, Baba Indrajith 45; Chirag Jani 2/30).
In Hyderabad: Hyderabad 247/4; 90 overs (Rohit Rayudu 90, Chandan Sahani 67, Rahul Radesh 41; Divij Mehra 2/38) vs Delhi.
