Siddarth Kaul, who has been chosen in the Indian one-day squad for the series against Sri Lanka has been a surprise choice indeed.
With Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to go with Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav, India have a great bowling line-up.
Speaking about the competition for places, Kaul was quoted as saying in an NDTV report, "I am not thinking too much about that. It is an honour to be picked for India, a dream come true. I am going into the series with a mindset that helped me do well in domestic cricket, IPL and India. I am ready to do what the team demands from me.”
"I got silent when I was told about the selection. I just kept running and bowling, did not know what was happening around me. I feel blessed that I have got this call-up," added Kaul.
