Jamshedpur: Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) has hailed the selection of its fast bowler Varun Aaron in the Indian team for the five-match ODI series and lone T20 match against England beginning August 31.
Aaron has been included in place of the injured Ishant Sharma.
"It is a great news though not surprising," said Rajesh Verma, secretary of JSCA.
Verma said that Aaron has been consistently performing well and was waiting for a call in the Indian team.
The 21-year-old has impressed the selectors after taking 12 wickets in the recently-concluded Emerging Players Tournament at Australia, he added.
