The Rohit Sharma-led side has strengthened the squad with two more off-spinners as it prepares for four Test matches starting at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur from February 9. Haryana’s Jayant Yadav, who has played for India before, and Delhi’s Pulkit Narang have been added to the squad as net bowlers. Narang currently plays for the Army.
Earlier these bowlers got a chance
Apart from Jayant and Narang, earlier also 4 spinners were sent as net bowlers of Team India. Sai Kishore, Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar and Saurabh Kumar are named in this. Team India will have to face Nathan Lyon in the Border Gavaskar Trophy, for which good spinners are constantly being included in the team as net bowlers.
