The BCCI has slammed veteran players Kabolu Navdeep Saini for saying that playing inexperienced Natarajan, who played first-class matches, in the Sydney Test was not the right decision. Navdeep Saini has been given a chance for the third Test, which starts on Thursday. The BCCI on Wednesday announced the final squad for the Sydney Test.


Mayank Agarwal, who did not impress much in the last few matches, was replaced by Rohit. However, the team management is planning to replace the injured Umesh Yadav with Natarajan. It is known that Indian veteran pacer Ashish Nehra has broken his lip.

Speaking to PTI on Tuesday, Nehra said that Navdeep Saini should be included in the final squad instead of Natarajan. In addition to playing List-A matches, Saini said the extra pace bowling on the Sydney flat wicket would work for TeamIndia.
