New Delhi: Itching to attain peak fitness ahead of the tough tour of Australia later this year, pace spearhead Zaheer Khan reckons the emergence of youngsters like Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron bodes well for Indian cricket.
Yadav caught the eye of many during India's one-day series against England and the subsequent first Test against the West Indies here and equally impressive was Aaron in the ODIs, and their efforts did not escape Zaheer's attention.
"It is a positive sign for Indian cricket. I was watching the morning session (of day 2 of the first Test against West Indies) and it was heartening to see Umesh bowl in that channel. They have the pace," Zaheer told PTI.
