Parthiv and Bhuvi Likely to Play in Mohali

Parthiv Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar included in Indian Test squad for Mohali. 

BCCI medical team confirms that India wicket keeper Wriddhiman Saha developed a strain in his left thigh during the second match of the five match Paytm Test Series-2016, played against England at Visakhapatnam.

As a precautionary measure, Saha has been advised rest and will not play in the next Test match of the series.   Meanwhile Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns to the squad after being out due to injury after playing a first class game as is the new rule about players proving fitness before making a comeback after injury.

Patel will almost certainly play as he is the replacement for the injured Saha.  Bhuveneshwar kumar is likely to be included due the nature of the Mohali pitch... it may be tough on debutant Jayant Yadav, but he may have to sit out this match as India follow the horses for courses policy.

I am surely curious to see how Parthiv fares.
I have always admired his batting skills not so his wicket keeping skills.
If his wicket keeping skills have improved, he will be an asset to the team.

Guess the dryness of the pitch overcame any thought that the ball would swing about... so Bhuvi was not picked.... I think Kumble and Kohli got it spot on....

Jayant Yadav is proving to be an invaluable find... and yet he wouldn't even be in the reckoning if NOHIT Sharma was not injured...

Parthiv's keeping is fine... even Saha missed several stumpings and hard catches... but every time Parthiv misses even a quarter chance... the knives are out...

Noticed that none of the Indian commentators mentioned his GREAT catch staying low and picking up a very difficult nick to snare Brairstow off Jayant... only Nasser complimented his keeping...

His batting is much better than before and he could play as pure lefty opener... as good or better than Gambhir and Dhawan.
