Mumbai: Praising Kedar Jadhav for the two brilliant innings he has played in the ODI series against England, India chief selector MSK Prasad said he had seen the 31-year-old enjoy playing the finisher's role.

"Kedar Jadhav is a little dynamite. I saw him play a Ranji game at Lahli, Andhra vs Maharashtra (2014-15 quarters). It was a seaming track and they were some for 40-6 and this guy scored some 80-odd and won the game for Maharashtra,” said Prasad.

"Somehow, like Virat (Kohli), he enjoys chasing and enjoys finisher’s role. During one of the recent India A tours to Australia he played that role. Even in Zimbabwe he did well and I'm happy for him."

Parvez Rasool has replaced Ravichandran Ashwin in the T20I team and Prasad hailed the J&K player and compared him with Jayant Yadav, who played a significant role in the Test series win over England.

"Rasool has been superb in the shorter form of the game as you can see from his stats. He is actually a good all-rounder just like Jayant Yadav."
