Kuldeep Yadav can’t wait to play at Motera

Kuldeep Yadav

Kuldeep Yadav can’t wait to experience the feeling of playing at Motera, the largest stadium in the world. Ahead of the day night test, scheduled to get underway on February 24th, Kuldeep Yadav shared the pictures of the stadium, hailing the staff involved in building the stadium.

Earlier, on Friday, Hardik Pandya also posted pictures of the Motera Stadium and termed the experience of being at the world largest stadium as ‘surreal’. Both India and England have won a match each thus the team that wins at Motera can’t lose the series. The match is also important in context of the World Test Championship. England need to win this match to stay alive in contention for the WTC final. Even a draw will end their hopes of qualifying. India, on the other hand, need a 2-1 win to quality. If the series ends in a draw, Australia will face New Zealand in the summit clash.

India have announced the squad for the last two Tests and Umesh Yadav has been included in the squad. However, he’ll need to undergo a fitness test before he can be considered for the selection. As per the reports, the fitness test will be held on 22nd February.

India squad for last two Tests: Virat Kohli (Capt), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vc), KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Md. Siraj.
