Indore : India captain Virat Kohli has hinted Karnataka pacer Prasidh Krishna could be a "surprise package" going into the World T20 slated to be held in Australia later this year.

"You''ll have to figure out who are the people that are very similar in their bowling skills, and you pick the senior one. I think one guy will be a surprise package going to Australia.

Someone who can bowl with pace and has bounce," Kohli said after India''s seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the second T20I on Tuesday.

"Prasidh Krishna has done well in the domestic arena. It is a great luxury to have this group of bowlers in all formats. Looking at the World Cup, we have enough options," he added.

Prasidh plays for KKR in the IPL and has been a well-known name in the domestic circuit as well. In 18 IPL matches, he has picked up 14 wickets with a strike rate of 29 and with an economy rate of 9.32.

The 23-old pacer from Karnataka has so far played six first-class matches and 41 List A games in which he has scalped 20 and 67 wickets respectively.
