“Hardik is very much in line to play Test matches in England and will be one of the most important players after our A+ cricketers when we play the T20 World Cup. So Hardik’s promotion is about what he brings to the team. That’s what the selectors have factored in.” A BCCI source told to PTI.

“Kuldeep is slowly slipping down the radar and he should consider himself lucky that he has managed to retain his contract” BCCI source added.

Axar Patel grabbed 27-wicket haul against England at home. He backs in the annual contract. One thing is required to play a minimum of three Test matches to enter the lowest bracket of annual contract.
