Prasidh Krishna added to India squad for fourth Test

The 25-year-old had traveled with the squad as a standby

The BCCI have confirmed that Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna has been added to the India squad for the fourth Test at The Oval, starting September 2nd. The 25-year-old tearaway, who made his international debut earlier this year against England, traveled to the United Kingdom as a standby player but now has been added to the senior squad for the fourth Test ‘based on the request of the team management.’



Prasidh has played 9 first-class matches and has taken 34 wickets at a remarkable average of 20.26. The 25-year-old, however, has not played any red-ball cricket in over a year, with his last appearance coming in the 2020/21 Ranji Trophy against Bengal in March 2020. The 2019/20 edition of the Ranji Trophy, in which Karnataka made the semi-final, proved to be a fruitful one for Prasidh, who picked 14 wickets in 3 games at an average of 17.00 and SR of 33.2.

India’s squad for the fourth Test

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohd. Shami, Md. Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Umesh Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper), Abhimanyu Easwaran, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
