Shardul Thakur, the fast bowler from Mumbai is known for his consistency with the ball. In the second and final Test against Windies at Hyderabad, Shardul Thakur earned his Test Cap for India.
Yes, after Prithvi Shaw received his test cap for India, Shardul Thakur also earned his Test cap and he became the 294th Test player in Indian cricket history. After two years of being with the Indian cricket team, Shardul Thakur finally made his test debut. Shardul Thakur became the fifth player to make a debut for India in tests this year. He received his Test cap from the Indian coach Ravi Shastri.
Shardul Thakur replaced Mohammad Shami, however, but didn’t have a great debut as he had to leave the field only in his second over with an injury. He could only deliver 10 balls before he went back to the pavilion. However, the cricket fans are very happy to see Shardul Thakur receive the test cap.
Many people took to twitter and applauded the debut of Shardul Thakur in test series. Here, have a look at the reactions of the twitterati :

Shardul Thakur will make his Test debut. I would have picked Mayank Agarwal too. Opportune time to see what batting alternatives we have.#INDvsWI

Shardul Thakur becomes the 5th player to make a debut for India in Tests this year.
The last time five players made their Test debut for India in a calendar year was in 2013 (Mohammad Shami, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar)#INDvsWI

@IamNicck i was looking forward to watching Md.Siraj, the lad has been outstanding in domestic circuit. Would have been a better option than Shardul thakur.

Looks like deal with Mumbai lobby to give Hanuma Vihari a test cap. In return Mumbai – Virat lobby getting Shardul Thakur, Pant, Shaw into team. Domestic performance and wait list be damned!

Umesh Yadav is such a bad bowler that he even makes Shardul Thakur look like a decent bowler #INDvWI

I congratulate "Shardul Thakur" who has been handed the Test cap. The pacer from Mumbai is set to make his debut in Hyderabad few moments from here on.
All the best dude.
