Saba Karim, the former India cricketer and ex-member of the senior men’s selection committee, expressed happiness over seeing the current team management persisting with fast bowler Prasidh Krishna in the ongoing ODI series against Zimbabwe despite not having great outings in previous series against the West Indies and England.
Though Krishna picked just two wickets in ODIs against England and took just one wicket in two matches against the West Indies, the Indian team still picked him for the Zimbabwe series. In the first two matches, Krishna returned with figures of 3/50 and 1/28 before being rested for the final ODI on Monday.
“Yes (on decision to persist with Krishna), and you know what, against West Indies in the ODI, if I remember correctly, he didn’t have a very good outing. It’s good to see that the Indian team management is persistent with Prasidh Krishna and that’s been the hallmark of this new set-up,” said Karim on ‘Sports Over The Top’ show on Sports18.
