India’s Test pacers bound for South Africa tour set to play Ranji Trophy semi-finals

first_imgVirat Kohli has been rested for India’s limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka while Hardik Pandya opted out of the Test series against Sri Lanka. However, there was no such break for India’s Test specialists bound for South Africa later this month.Kohli and Pandya, have of course, shared far greater workload than the Test specialists. The India captain has been the busiest cricketer in the world while Pandya, who debuted in 2016, has been a constant for Indian teams in all three formats in 2017.In what could be a wise move, BCCI decided to keep India’s Test players match-ready for the first Test against South Africa which begins in Cape Town on January 5.The Indian board decided to allow the likes of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav to turn up for their respective states in the Ranji Trophy semi-final from December 17-21. Bengal will be playing Delhi in Pune in the first semi-final while Karnataka will take on Vidarbha in the second semi-final.”Shami and Wriddhiman Saha will turn up for Bengal while Ishant Sharma might turn up for Delhi. Umesh Yadav will get to play for Vidarbha against Karnataka which will have KL Rahul in their ranks. Since there aren’t any practice games in South Africa, it is only fair that they play Ranji Trophy,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on Wednesday.It is learnt that the national selectors also wanted the Test specialists to play the semi-final.When asked CAB joint secretary Avishek Dalmiya said: “Yes, Shami and Wriddhi will be playing for Bengal. It has been a good move by BCCI to allow the top stars take part in a marquee match. Ranji Trophy is the premier tournament and at a stage like semi-final, it will be a boost for the Bengal team to get two of its senior most players,” Dalmiya said.advertisementHowever when contacted, a senior DDCA official said that there is still no clarity whether Ishant will be available for the match.Ishant, who has captained the side impressively at the group league stage also bowled brilliantly taking 20 wickets in four games.The final is set to be played at the Holkar Stadium in Indore from December 29.  (With inputs from PTI)last_img read more
