5 players India should include for South Africa series
After dominating almost all teams in their own backyard, the Indian team will now embark on an 18-month long overseas campaign.
This provides an opportunity to the number one side to assert their supremacy across all conditions and hence the combination of the team will have to be spot on. The role of the selectors becomes very important as they chalk out and identify players who can handle the pressure and come out triumphant.
The selectors might announce the squad tomorrow and here in this slider, we identify five players who should be invested in for the upcoming sojourn all around the world.
#5 Kuldeep Yadav
The left-arm chinaman bowler has had a spectacular start to his International career but has lost his spot to the regular spinners in the side, R Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja.
However, the selectors should take him to South Africa as, with his unorthodox skill, he can well be India's X-factor on South African pitches. Also, he is still an unknown commodity in International cricket and this would allow the Indian team to spring a surprise against a rampant South Africa in their own conditions.
