The Indian group administration is prone to want Shardul Thakur over left-arm pace sensation Thangarasu Natarajan within the third Test in opposition to Australia instead of injured Umesh Yadav. According to sources, senior pacer Yadav is heading home for rehabilitation after being ruled out of the fourth and remaining Test in Brisbane as properly. The third Test begins in Sydney from January 7.
“While people are excited about the brilliant progress shown by T Natarajan, we mustn’t forget he has played only one first class match for Tamil Nadu. And Shardul has been a seasoned domestic red ball pacer for Mumbai,” a BCCI supply aware about developments in Australia instructed PTI on Thursday.
“Shardul was really unfortunate that his Test debut against West Indies ended abruptly attributable to damage even earlier than he may bowl an over. He has been shaping up properly and would possibly substitute Umesh within the taking part in XI,” the supply added.
Shardul has to date performed 62 first-class video games and has 206 wickets to point out for his efforts.
Another facet that India wish to handle forward of the Third Test is an extended tail that has affected the group.
Shardul has six first-class half centuries and through his stint with the nationwide group in white ball video games, he has proved to be a good batsman.
“Obviously the next few training sessions will be important and that’s why the final call is likely to be taken in Sydney,” the supply stated.
As far as Yadav is anxious, he’s anticipated to go off to National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for intensive rehab programme.
