Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav Included in India Squad for First Three Tests
Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav were included in India’s test squad for first three tests against England. The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s senior selection committee met in Leeds to decide about the India squad for first three test matches. India is going to play the Test Series with two wicket-keepers as selectors have included Pant alongside senior wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik. India will miss the services of their main wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha, who is still recovering the thumb injury he suffered during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.
Mohammed Shami who was dropped from the Afghanistan game after failing the fitness test has made his way back. Apart from Pant, India’s chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav has also been included in the Test squad.
“Bhuvneshwar Kumar made his lower back condition worse in the 3rd ODI against England. The BCCI medical team assessed his condition and a call on his inclusion in the Test squad will be made soon,” a release by BCCI said.
“Jasprit Bumrah was included in the squad based on his fitness from the 2nd Test,” the release added.
