Umesh Yadav comes back for first teasing Test against New Zealand

Umesh Yadav comes back for first teasing Test against New Zealand

India will play New Zealand with full support from spectators to both sides as the teasing Test series begins. Umesh Yadav has been included in the team but India is not sure whether to play with him or play with Ishant Sharma. The latter is not completely fit. Playing Eleven for India can be as follows:  

  1. Ajinkya Rahane  
  2. Cheteshwar Pujara
  3. Shubman Gill
  4. Virat Kohli (C)
  5. Ravindra Jadeja
  6. Wriddhiman Saha
  7. Ishant Sharma
  8. Jasprit Bumrah
  9. Mohammed Shami
  10. Ravichandra Ashwin
  11. Umesh Yadav

India has a well groomed pace battery of Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, Yadav to support their top spinners Ashwin & Jadeja. However, India will play four bowlers and drop a couple from the mentioned above. If India does so then their attack will surely depend on how Ravindra Jadeja performs with bat & ball.

Umesh Yadav has been picked but it’s again looks that he might not be in the playing eleven. If Umesh Yadav plays first Test starting on Friday at Wellington Grounds then it will be like gold to him. He can do his best to retain his place with this golden opportunity.

Yes, I said it’s a teasing Test series between India & New Zealand because Virat Kohli will be tested. According to Kohli when he was asked about how he’s prepared for the first Test? “I will keep playing as a key batsman for India. We will do what the New Zealanders do. If the go defensive then we’ll also defend and if they counter attack us then we’ll do so”. Said Kohli on Wednesday. Two days before the Test Match.
