Gavaskar doubts on Prasidh Krishna

The former Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar has ignored the player Prasidh Krishna’s performances but he wants the player to prove him wrong after the player made his comeback from an injury.

The Men in Blues is scheduled to play three ODI, three T20I, and Two Test matches in India’s South Africa tour. After completing the three-match ODI series 2-1, India is set to play in the two test matches against Proteas men.

Chasing history in South Africa, India hasn’t won a test match in South Africa in 31 years. India will be welcoming the seasoned campaigners Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah for their first Test in South Africa.

With the senior players Rohit and Kohli set to lead the batting charge, legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has backed the men in Blues to score heavily against the formidable bowling attack of the Proteas.

After suffering a heartbreak loss in the World Cup finals, Rohit and Kohli have returned to the Indian Camp for the Test series against South Africa. Sunil Gavaskar said that he is expecting ‘experienced batters’ like Kohli and Rohit to run a successful campaign against South Africa.

He also mentioned that if Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi are absent, it can boost the massive totals in the Test series. Talking about the Indian bowling attack, Gavaskar explained his reason behind naming Mukesh Kumar as Mohammed Shami’s replacement who was the leading wicketkeeper in the World Cup 2023.

While speaking about Prasidh Krishna, Sunil Gavaskar said,  “I am not sure about Prasidh Krishna. He has come back from an injury. If he is required to bowl 15-20 overs in the day, I am not sure if he will be able to do that.”

“I hope he proves me wrong because if anybody proves me wrong, that means India are doing well and if India are doing well, I am very happy.

I believe Bumrah and Siraj pick themselves because of the way they have bowled over the last year and a half with the white ball and the red ball. So my opening bowlers would be them,” Gavaskar said.

Backed by the former Indian skipper to complement Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj in the first Test, senior Pacer Mukesh made his debut against West Indies in July.

“Then depending on what you want you want and what kind of a surface you are looking at, my third pick would be Mukesh Kumar because he moves the ball and bowls good lines and lengths.”

“He has got the experience of bowling long spells because he has played a lot of Ranji Trophy cricket. If you to bowl the entire day, you have to be ready to bowl at least 18 to 20 overs,” Gavaskar added.

India will be playing their first test against South Africa on December 26 at SuperSport Park Cricket Stadium.
