ENG vs IND: 3 Indian Players Who Didn’t Deserve A Spot In India Squad vs England. The BCCI announced India’s Test squad for the one-off Test match against England to be played in Birmingham from July 1. Chetwahwar Pujara has returned to the squad and Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer have been included in place of Mayank Agarwal and the injured Ajinkya Rahane.

Among the bowlers, the management has decided to go with a 6-man pace attack with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja being the two specialist spinners. Jadeja is currently nursing an injury after being ruled out of IPL 2022.

With the side with premier bowlers, it will be interesting to see if Shardul Thakur gets his opportunity in the playing XI. He did not have the best of IPL season with the bat or ball. He took seven wickets in the Test series and scored 117 runs in two matches before the series was postponed.
