New Delhi. A day earlier, the BCCI announced the Indian team (IND vs NZ Test Series) for the 2-Test series against New Zealand. Many young faces have got a chance in this. It also includes Karnataka’s fast bowler Prasidh Krishna. Famous was with the team on the tour of England. But he didn’t get a chance to play. But, due to resting Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami against New Zealand, he has a chance to make his Test debut after ODIs.
Famous made his debut in international cricket from ODIs against England in March this year (Prasidh Krishna ODI Debut). In his very first match, he played an important role in India’s victory by taking 4 wickets. This was the best performance by any Indian bowler in ODI debut.
The famous Krishna has not been included in the Indian Test team all of a sudden. The selectors had their eyes on him for a long time. He was also kept as a standby bowler for the fourth Test against England at The Oval in August this year. Apart from this, he was also the standby player of the Indian team in the final of the World Test Championship.
Glad to be a part of Team India again: Pramukh
Happy to be a part of the renowned Indian Test team, who made his first-class debut in 2015. In a conversation with the Times of India, he said that I am very grateful for this opportunity. Because I will get a chance to share the dressing room with the legendary players again. At the same time, I will also be able to learn the essential nuances of the game from him. Famous believes that the tour of England helped him become a better player.
‘England tour boosts confidence’
He said that bowling in England is very challenging. Well, there is a lot to learn in the condition. I feel my confidence has increased after that tour and the level of my game has also gone up. Bowling in England has shown consistency in my skills and performance. That tour has stirred up the X factor in me. Also made strong to withstand the pressure.
‘Pressure never prevails on Rahul Dravid’
Rahul Dravid will join the Indian team as a coach from the New Zealand series. Famous believes that this is another learning opportunity for him. The fast bowler said that I have had a detailed conversation with the ‘India-A’ team and with Rahul sir during my time at the National Cricket Academy. He is someone who is always calm and never seems to be under pressure. These are among the many aspects of the game that we get to learn from them. So, I am excited to learn from him at this stage of my career.
