Mohammad Kaif said: “I think Rohit Sharma, Jaiswal and Shubman Gill are at number three. Shubman Gill’s form is not that special but I will give him a chance, he is a promising player.

“I will bring Shreyas Iyer at 5, KS Bharat at 6, Axar Patel at 7 and Washington Sundar at 8, he is an all-rounder, with spin and bats. Ashwin will come at 9, Kuldeep Yadav at 10, Chinese leg spin variation and Bumrah will come at 11.
