Team India bowling coach Bharat Arun has ruled out Prasidh Krishna’s chances of playing at Oval test.

Xtra Time Web Desk: Prasidh Krishna will have to wait for his opportunity in test cricket. The Karnataka pacer’s inclusion in the main squad is just a “precautionary measure” and India’s bowling coach Bharath Arun on Wednesday said that they are only looking at workload management of fast bowlers purely from the perspective of the ongoing series. Mohammed Shami has bowled nearly 100 overs in the series while Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah have crossed the three figure mark.

Asked how the team management will monitor their workload keeping IPL and World T20 in mind, Arun said: “To be honest, we are looking at the availability of fast bowlers for us in this series and I don’t think we should look too far ahead.

“We have to look at how many fast bowlers with fresh legs we can play at any given point of time. It is being looked at purely from the point of view of this series and not any further,” the bowling coach clarified.

The coach also said that there were some concerns about Ishant Sharma’s form in the Leeds Test but they have been put to rest.

“Ishant’s form in the last game as you said was a bit of concern and but we have things sorted out. Prasidh is just a precautionary inclusion.

“We needed to induce him into the Test team now, just in case. He is being included in the team considering all the workload management issues and there’s nothing more to it than that.”
