Navdeep Saini made test debut

Navdeep Saini made test debut at SCG

Delhi fast bowler Navdeep Saini made test debut at SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground) against Australia on Thursday, January 7th in the 3rd test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Saini became the 300th Indian player to play test cricket for India. Saini superseded injured Yadav in the playing xi.

Earlier he played 2 matches in the ODI series, in which India lost 2-1. Saini played 2 out of 3 ODI matches and grabbed only 1 wicket. Many of us might be thinking that why Saini was preferred over T Natarajan in the playing xi. The reason is Saini has played more fast-class games than Natarajan. Natarajan is a very good white-ball bowler but yet to prove himself in the longest format of the game. Saini has done well for India A also, which paved the way for him into the Indian Test side.
