Fast bowler Navdeep Saini and off-break Jayant Yadav have been picked up for the 3-match ODI series against South Africa as announced by the BCCI on Wednesday.
Navdeep Saini has been included as the cover for injured Mohammed Siraj. Mohammed Siraj faced the hamstring injury during the second test match and ultimately ruled out of the 3rd test match. Navdeep Saini carries a lot of valuable experience of the South African pitches, as he was the part of the A team which travelled before the series.
