Navdeep Saini is making his Test debut against Australia in Sydney, and received his maiden Test cap from Jasprit Bumrah. The pacer replaces Umesh Yadav, who was ruled out of the rest of the series with an injury.

The BCCI took to Twitter to share the video from the cap presentation.

"Congratulations @navdeepsaini96. He realizes his dream of playing Test cricket for #TeamIndia today. A proud holder of Billed cap 299 and he receives it from @Jaspritbumrah93. #AUSvIND," wrote BCCI.

Navdeep Saini is the 299th bowler to represent India in the longest format of the game. 

India made a bright comeback after a humiliating defeat in the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, when they were all out on merely 36 in the second innings. 

Despite losing Virat Kohli (paternity leave) and Mohammed Shami (wrist fracture), the Ajinkya Rahane-led side made a brilliant return to beat Australia by 8 wickets in the second Test in Melbourne.

Australia have won the toss and opted to bat against India in Sydney. For the hosts, Will Pucovski is making his Test debut.
