All-rounder Jayant Yadav is essential for the Indian Test crew for the continuous Test series in South Africa and he has been approached to remain back for the three ODIs also now as cover for Washington Sundar.
The Tamil Nadu all-rounder was tested positive for Covid-19 in the wake of showing up in South Africa as of late, and he has gone into confinement.
Fortunately, the other Indian players who had gone with Sundar had tried negative while this will be a decent chance for Jayant to make a name.
Suryakumar Yadav, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Venkatesh Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Prasidh Krishna were different players to go with Sundar on the departure from Bengaluru.
The ODI series is booked to begin the nineteenth of January and will end on the 23rd of January. The last ODI series in South Africa in 2018 was totally overwhelmed by India with a scoreline of 5-1.
Jayant Yadav, who has been approached to remain back, assumes a similar role of off-turn all-rounder and has enormous homegrown experience added to his repertoire.
He has played only One Day International such a long way in 2016 against New Zealand in which he wrapped up with figures of 1 wicket for 8 runs. He is a helpful hitter down the request and can end up being a decent choice for India until Sundar recuperates on schedule.
“Sundar has tested positive and he has been isolated from other players. All other players’ reports came negative. They are undergoing a three-day quarantine period. Once they get three negative reports, these players will go into the Indian team bubble,”quoted by BCCI Official as said by Indian Express.
Both Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel as being injured India will require a player who has ability to play the role of spin all-rounders in the right zone.
R Ashwin has been reviewed into the ODI side also for the forthcoming series against South Africa and he is relied upon to be the best option choice now in front of Yadav. KL Rahul will take up the influential position without any harm to Rohit Sharma for the ODI series.
