Jasprit Bumrah earns maiden India Test call-up ahead of South Africa series

India's squad for South Africa tour to be named today

The BCCI has announced the squad for the T20I series against Sri Lanka and also for the Test squad that tours South Africa in the beginning of January.

Bumrah was included as the fifth pacer in the Test team but left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, now in the squad for the Sri Lanka Tests, missed out.

The Test squad comprised three openers in Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay followed by four automatic middle-order picks in Cheteshwar Pujara, skipper Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit.

India's pace-heavy attack includes Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah.

It was earlier expected that the teams would be named on Monday last week, but only the ODI squad for Sri Lanka was named, with Virat Kohli being rested.

The 23-year-old Bumrah, who has 52 and 40 wickets respectively from 28 ODIs and 3O T20Is, has not played any first-class cricket this season. The pacer, who has been an indispensable part of India's limited-overs team, has staked his claim for a position in Test team with his control and consistency, and the pacer picked himself with his performances in the limited-overs, according to the chief selector MSK Prasad.

The Indian board also announced the squad for the T20I series against Sri Lanka.

"I really feel unfortunate for Kuldeep Yadav, he would definitely have added variety". The last time India toured South Africa in 2013/14, they were beaten 1-0 in a two-match Test series.

The team will leave for South Africa on December 27. "Otherwise, he is a top-class bowler", He explained.

T20I series vs Sri Lanka: Rohit (Capt), Rahul, Shreyas, Manish, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik, W Sundar, Yuzvendra, Kuldeep, Deepak Hooda, Bumrah, M Siraj, Basil Thampi, Jaydev Unadkat.
