Just saw him today. Last night I told him to show his bowling action on his phone,” said the former India player. “Hes played three (Ranji Trophy) games, is an exciting prospect. Selectors and other people have seen him and feel hes got something. If you find someone clocking 140-plus (KPH), then straightway pick him and dont make him wait.” Kapoor also talked about the three spinners selected for the game. “We are waiting for the selectors who are coming this evening. We will talk to them and see whether we have to play all three. “If I see an off spinner with a clean action getting wickets I am excited. Over the last couple of months I have worked with Jayant Yadav in Delhi. I have seen him over the last 2-3 years, seen the difference in his bowling, in what he was and what he is now. Hes still a long way to go, but has potential.” Pujara said tomorrow he and Kapoor will talk to the South African think tank and decide whether more than 11 players can be fielded in the match. “We will have a word with the South African team and see how they want to go about it and then take a call,” he said.
