Both KL Rahul and Umesh Yadav have been in great form over the past couple of years or so but have not got sufficient chances to prove themselves in the Indian cricket team.
The Indian bowling coach, Bharath Arun, opened up about their performances and their future with the Indian side.
"It's really unfortunate that Umesh didn't get to play a lot in South Africa and in England. The reason being, bowlers who played, performed exceptionally well," said Arun to PTI.
"We look at Umesh as somebody who is quick. We also have a system where we rotate the bowlers so that they remain fresh and Umesh is a part of that (policy). We are extremely confident about what Umesh can bring to the table."
"As a coach, I feel Rahul is an outstanding player with tremendous potential, who should be persisted with. (in Rahul) we have a super batsman in the future for us," said Arun.
