Skipper Rohit Sharma and the team management have shown confidence in Jayant Yadav’s spin-bowling exploits. He was added to India’s squad for the two-match Test series against New Zealand. He also played the second Test of the series but bowled only seven overs in the match.
Jayant Yadav also made the cut in India’s squad for the ongoing Test series against South Africa. With him already in South Africa, he could well be asked to stay there for the ODI series as well. The 31-year-old spinner has played one ODI for India in his ODI cricket career and also has a wicket to his name.
