The national selectors met and BCCI have announced a fifteen-man squad for India's solitary home Test against Afghanistan, at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru next month. "I enjoy working with him because he wants to learn about his game and all great players do that", the former South African opener told reporters on Thursday.

Afghanistan, who became a Full Member in June a year ago, will be the fourth nation to make their Test debut against India, with the other three being Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. "If they can overcome that then potentially they will have a good series", Kirsten told reporters in Abu Dhabi. "When they were excluded from the side, we made it very clear that two to three youngsters are being given an opportunity".

"There was no intention not to play him". "This was the best opportunity for us to give Karun a chance, because he's been doing well", Prasad said. "Any act has to be judged by the intention that precedes it", said Chaudhary. "The fact that he is going and playing county cricket is setting a clear message to his teammates, to England and everyone around the world that he wants India to have a successful tour of the United Kingdom and wants to lead from the front", he said. "It is only because of the English challenge which we have to rise through to the satisfaction of the entire cricket fraternity in this country and Virat wants to sustain for the right reasons", Choudhary said. But Kohli has also been named captain of the Indian T20I side for the games in Ireland, which take place on 27 and 29 June, making his appearance doubtful in one of the two places.
