Jayant Yadav became first Indian players to be a part of DRS on Test debut (IND vs ENG 2nd Test 2016)

On Thursday, the Haryana off-spinner, Jayant Yadav became the 286th cricketer to play Test cricket for India as he made his debut against England in the second Test in Vizag. He replaced his Haryana team-mate Amit Mishra in the playing XI for India.

On Day 2 of the Test match, the off-spin bowling allrounder provided his team with vital lower-order runs and then conjured a wicket out of nowhere in the field, and even made excellent use of the DRS.
