Prasidh can succeed in tests like Bumrah: Gavaskar

The 25-year-old from Karnataka made a sensational international career debut when he won four wickets in the first One-Day International (OD) against England at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadium in Pune.

Prasidh then struck twice in the 37th game in the second game against England, which included an unplayable Yorker to get rid of Jos Buttler.

“I’ll tell you what he is about these seam deliveries that the Indian selection committee must seriously consider for Red Ball (tests) as well,” said Gavaskar during his TV commentary during the second ODI in Pune.

“Just as Jasprit Bumrah of T20s and ODIs has now become India’s premium test bowler, Prasidh Krishna could also be a very, very good red ball bowler with his pace and seam position.”

Prasidh has captured 34 wickets in nine top-rated games to date, plus 87 wickets in 50 List-A games.

After an impressive time picking up four wickets, Prasidh drove a few runs in the second ODI, which England won with six wickets

The three-game ODI series will be decided on Sunday (March 28th) at the same MCA stadium in Pune and the Karnataka Pacer is hoping to get back on its feet quickly.

“We will come back strong. Our execution could have been better, here I am speaking of myself. Yes, we made mistakes and we could have done better, but they fought very well,” said Prasidh.
