Kohli speaks about India's surprise weapon

Indian captain Virat Kohli on Tuesday hinted that Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna, who turns out for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, could be a "surprise package" going into the T20 World Cup. On a day when his lead pacer Jasprit Bumrah returned from a long injury layoff, Kohli spoke about the options at his disposal as India geared up for the mega event, to be held in Australia later this year.'I think there'll be one player who will be a surprise package.

Prasidh Krishna is someone who has bowled really well in domestic cricket,' Kohli said after India's seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the second T20 International Given that the skipper has mentioned his name, the 23-year-old could be part of the team for the upcoming New Zealand tour. For the uninitiated, besides his exploits at the domestic circuit, Krishna showed composure while bowling the Super Over in a high-stakes IPL game against Delhi Capitals last year. Kohli was delighted with the result at the Holkar Stadium, and the manner in which it was achieved.
