MSK Prasad reveals why Jasprit Bumrah was selected

Uncapped pacer Jasprit Bumrah has received his maiden Test call-up, while Parthiv Patel has been selected as the back-up wicketkeeper for the three-match Test series against South Africa.

Virat Kohli (Capt), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vc), Rohit Sharma, Wridhhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Parthiv Patel, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah.

The Indian squad apparently comprises of two spinners Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja while pace department is fully loaded with six pacers including Pandya.

Captain Virat Kohli won't play the T20 Internationals against Sri Lanka.

The 23-year-old Bumrah, who has 52 and 40 wickets respectively from 28 ODIs and 3O T20Is, has not played any first-class cricket this season. Considering his Ranji Trophy performances past year, where he bowled brilliantly the whole season. The All-India Senior Selection Committee will meet in New Delhi to pick the team for the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka as well. It was a unanimous choice and we had no doubts about that.

BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said that the Indian team will be leaving for South Africa on 27th.

"I really feel unfortunate for Kuldeep Yadav, he would definitely have added variety".

India will begin their tour of South Africa with a two-day warm-up match at Boland Park in Paarl from December 30-31.

"Otherwise, Kuldeep is definitely a top-class bowler and over a period of time we'll see him growing".

India T20 squad vs Sri Lanka: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Basil Thampi, Jaydev Unadkat.
