IND vs ENG: India’s Playing XI For The Rescheduled 5th Test (Predicted). The BCCI announced a 17-member India Squad for the rescheduled fifth Test against England slated to be played in Birmingham from July 1. India was leading the Test series 2-1 before the fifth Test in Manchester was postponed due to Covid-19 outbreak in the Indian camp. India will be also playing a three-match T20I and ODI series after the fifth Test.
India have named a formidable squad. Cheteshwar Pujara has been included in the side given his consistent performances in the County Championship while playing for Sussex. One big absence is that of Ajinkya Rahane who was ruled out of the Test match due to a hamstring injury. He also pulled out of the remaining IPL due to the same reason. Shubman Gill was picked in place of Mayank Agarwal, while Shreyas Iyer, who made his Test debut earlier was picked in place of the injured Rahane.
The players very much pick themselves in the playing XI. India would go with the tried and tested players and go in with an intent to win. Here’s the likely playing XI for India in the match.
