Rohit Sharma backs Prasidh Krishna following pacer's forgettable Test debut | India vs South Africa

Prasidh Krishna might not have had a memorable Test debut but Rohit Sharma still backed the young fast bowler.

Prasidh ended the India vs South Africa 1st Test with just 1 wicket from 20 overs and with a poor economy rate of 4.65.

The India skipper said the he was not ready to lose faith in Prasidh Krishna’s ability to withstand the rigours of five-day cricket.

'We had brief chat with management as to what we want from this game from bowlers, we haven’t exactly finalized our eleven, all our players are fit and available. We will sit down and decide,' Rohit said when asked about potential changes and whether Mukesh Kumar has a chance to play.

It seemed he wants to persist with Prasidh, who is not exactly known for his economy rate.

'Having said that I know we have a little bit of inexperience in bowling and when that happens, you got to show trust in them. That can happen with any team. Post last match, I said about Prasidh playing his first game. We all get nervous when you are playing your first game. It's understandable.

'But I'll still back that thought of mine, that he's got good ability to succeed at this level and especially in this format. So it's just about showing faith and trust in everyone and getting the job done from them.'

While Rohit said that every player is fit and available for the second Test, including Ravindra Jadeja, who has completely recovered from back spasms, it seemed that all-rounder Shardul Thakur has some ankle issue as he hasn’t bowled for last couple of sessions.

Thakur, who was seen walking with a slight limp, had sustained a blow on his left shoulder while batting. He recovered from it and batted on Monday at the centre wicket at net. However both on Monday and Tuesday, he didn’t bowl a single delivery.
