Jayant Yadav will be considering the ADA-VDCA stadium in Vizag as the stadium of dreams. In 2016, he made his ODI debut against New Zealand in the same ground and finished with figures of 4-0-8-1. Now, he has made his Test debut against England at the same venue, replacing Amit Mishra. (UPDATES)

Yadav shot into the national limelight with 65 wickets during the 2015/16 Ranji Trophy. Before the start of the series against New Zealand, Yadav put in some good performances with India A against Australia A with seven wickets in two games.

In his ODI debut, he picked up a wicket in his second over as he trapped Corey Anderson LBW for 0 as New Zealand folded up for 79, their lowest total against India in ODIs.
