Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal put up stunning performances in the series finale against New Zealand, helping India register their maiden series win against New Zealand. While Bumrah finished with figures of 2 for 0, Chahal finished with figures of 0 for 8. Nevertheless, the performance seems to have impressed Sunil Gavaskar, as he has backed the duo to play in Test cricket for India. The duo have already come up with sensational shows in the limited-overs, and Gavaskar believes it’s time for them to prove their worth in the longest format of the game.

‘They know exactly where to bowl’

“They were fantastic. They have been absolutely terrific. They had brought all their IPL experience into play, they know exactly where to bowl, to which batsman what line to bowl, what deliveries to bowl and yes, there will be that odd over when they will go for runs but they come so strongly. That tells you about their [Bumrah and Chahal] big heart as well. Take punishment and then to come back and bowl deadly overs,” said Gavaskar to NDTV Sports.

“Both these bowlers have been quite outstanding and I do believe that the way they are bowling they should also be considered for the red ball format which is the Test format. Particularly, I think both of them. Bumrah for example, you know in South Africa, Australia and England he will be quite a handful with the pace and with the accuracy that he has and Chahal as well, the way he has been tossing the ball up to the odd batsman, getting the ball to turn and grip, I think both of them are ready for red ball cricket.”
