The availability of Ishan and Surya was confirmed by the team's director of cricket operation Zaheer Khan.

India have been blessed with match-winning fast bowlers at the moment. While Mohammed Shami recently completed 200 Test wickets, Jasprit Bumrah has crossed the 100-wicket mark in the longest format of the game. Mohammed Siraj is fast becoming one of the most lethal pacers of the current generation. Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur have always contributed.

The current pace attack is recognised as one of the best in the world if not the best. In his recent interview with TOI, Zaheer Khan was asked about the quality of the fast bowling unit and is this the best India have ever had.

“We have Shami who is providing crucial breakthroughs to the team. Bumrah is the X factor of the squad who has dismissed the best in the world. Shardul Thakur has contributed with the bat and ball. Umesh Yadav has been consistent, while Ishant Sharma has played over 100 Test matches. Siraj has the variations to become one of the best. For me, this is the wonderful bowling attack India have,” said Zaheer.

India are currently taking on South Africa in a three-match Test series.
