Mukesh & Akash Deep audition for second pacer’s spot, bowl to IND top-order at nets: Report

IND vs ENG: Akash Deep has an impressive first-class record, where in 30 matches he has picked 104 wickets.

With just two days left for the start of the fourth IND vs ENG Test in Ranchi, once again, the million-dollar question is, who will replace Jasprit Bumrah, with the latter being rested for the match.

The team management has brought in Mukesh Kumar once again, who picked up 10 wickets in the last Ranji Trophy match, and also rewarded Akash Deep with a maiden Test call-up, after his impressive performances.

On Wednesday, as per various reports, at the Team India net session, it seemed like the duo of Mukesh and Akash Deep auditioned for the second fast-bowler’s role, with the obvious first choice being Mohammed Siraj. The duo were given new balls at the practice, and bowled against the top-order, including the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Rohit Sharma.
