Jasprit Bumrah, who has impressed with his form in the limited over format, has earned his maiden Test call-up for the South Africa away series, starting January.

Bumrah was included as the fifth pacer in the Test team but left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, now in the squad for the Sri Lanka Tests, missed out.

INDIA TEST SQUAD VS SOUTH AFRICA: Virat Kohli (C), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (VC), Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Parthiv Patel, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee met in New Delhi on Monday to pick the team for the upcoming South Africa tour as well as the T20I series against Sri Lanka. Considering his performance in Ranji Trophy last season, he bowled brilliantly that whole season. "The players have selected themselves", said BCCI chairman of selectors MSK Prasad.

"There was no doubt in picking Bumrah because he definitely adds variety to pace attack".

Meanwhile, selectors also named the 15-man squad for Sri Lanka T20Is.

"I really feel unfortunate for Kuldeep Yadav".

The team will leave for South Africa on December 27. But considering we are playing only three Test matches and having the number one and number two spinners in the world (Jadeja and Ashwin respectively), it's a big ask to select the youngster ahead of them. "But he is a fine bowler and over a period of time, we would see him grow", the former Andhra stumper said.

In the new look T20 squad, selectors have picked Kerala fast bowler Thampi known for his toe-crushing yorkers while Hooda, originally from Haryana, plays for Baroda at domestic level.

Rohit Sharma, like the ODI, will captain the side in the T20 series in the absence of Kohli.
