India's limited-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah got a Test call-up while wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav was dropped from the team when the selectors India named the squad for the upcoming three-match Test series against South Africa. Ravichandran Ashwin, as well, hogged the limelight by becoming the fastest bowler to 300 wickets in Tests.
"With regard to Bumrah, if we look at his performance in the last 18 months, he has been sensational". Considering his performance in Ranji Trophy last season, he bowled brilliantly that whole season. It's a unanimous choice and he definitely adds variety.
"Everybody is in very good form".
With the conditions in South Africa favoured to assist pacers, the selectors have chose to retain prime spin duo R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, leaving out Kuldeep Yadav.
Chinaman Yadav missing out on a Test nod was "unfortunate", according to Prasad.
"The nature of wickets in South Africa will suit his bowling", said Prasad, elaborating on the Gujarat slinger's selection. He explained that only two spinners were required for the tour and to select Kuldeep ahead of Jadeja and Ashwin would've been a big ask.
Bumrah will join India's pace quartet of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav in South Africa while all-rounder Hardik Pandya returns to the squad after opting out of the ongoing three-Test series against Sri Lanka, live on Sky Sports.
"Otherwise, Kuldeep is definitely a top-class bowler and over a period of time we'll see him growing".
Kohli was not happy about the tight schedule of the Sri Lanka series, which leaves India with no time whatsoever to prepare for the South Africa series. Usually, the General Body discusses the future tours and planning, but a preliminary round of full members discussion will take place on 6th and 7th.
