Young India seamer Siddharth Kaul is ecstatic to share the dressing room with senior cricketers Jasprit Bumrah and Suresh Raina in the upcoming tour to the UK.
Meanwhile, it will be a tough tour for Team India, as they have a poor record in the last few visits. India lost seven out of its past 11 Tests played in England. However, they have a very good chance to overhaul the host this time around.
India will start the tour with a three-match T20I series followed by three-match ODI series. Following the white ball game, a five-match Test will commence in August.
India, meanwhile, is battling it out with debutant Afghanistan in a one-off Test series. They are in line to register a thumping victory with the Afghans struggling with the bat in both the essays.
Siddharth Kaul got his national call-up on the back of the impressive performances in the IPL. He represented Sunrisers Hyderabad and led the seaming attack. Kaul made it to both the ODI and T20I team for the tour.
Along with Kaul, Suresh Raina has also made a return to the ODI side. He was part of the T20I squad which toured South Africa early in the year. However, he is making an ODI comeback after October 2015.
Kaul, Raina, Bumrah clear yo-yo test
An elated Kaul took to Twitter to announce he cleared the mandatory yo-yo test earlier on Friday. Meanwhile, the players for the limited-overs series came together for a fitness test at the NCA.
Also, Kaul shared a picture with Jasprit Bumrah and Raina and expressed his excitement about sharing the dressing room with these players.
“Excited Mein Aidaaa Cleared the Yo Yo Test. Can’t wait to share the dressing room with these fine gentlemen 🙂
#FitnessTest @ImRaina @Jaspritbumrah93,” the tweet read.
