Umesh Yadav has been deemed match forward of the third Test match between India and England. He was injured through the Boxing Day Test match in Australia the place he had pulled a calf damage. After therapy, the fast-bowler is again within the workforce after clearing his health take a look at to be included within the squad. But is it sufficient for him to be a part of the enjoying eleven? Gautam Gambhir feels the reply to that query is ‘No’.
The cricketer-turned-MP from Delhi, Gambhir was talking at a chat present on Star Sports. He believed that if India go in with three fast-bowlers at Motera, then these three fast-bowlers should be Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj.
He stated, “I don’t think Umesh Yadav will be in the playing XI. If India has to get down with three fast bowlers, then Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj should play. Mohammad Siraj was quite effective in Australia. In the second Test match also, where there was no help from the pitch for the fast bowlers, Siraj was constantly bowling fast. He was quite effective. So I think these three fast bowlers can be seen playing in the third Test match against England.”
Meanwhile, Ishant Sharma is all set to play his 100th Test match simply on the age of 32. It is a giant achievement contemplating the truth that very much less fast-bowlers have reached this milestone.
The team selection depends on which pitch will be used at the Motera, how the conditions would be and if Virat Kohli and Shastri want to play three seamers in the match. We will have to wait till Toss on Wednesday to confirm.
