After two months of intense domestic IPL 2022 fever, Team India is preparing for an international battle in its upcoming adventure. The IPL 2022 concludes on May 29, and the team is preparing for the next tournament against England. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announces the India squad for the 5th Test against England, where the 17-member squad will be emplaning for the India tour of England 2022.
However, former Vice-captain of the India test series, Ajinkya Rahane, who has suffered an injury, will be on rest for the coming few months and will not be a part of the game. In addition, Urman Malik and Axar Patel, who performed amazingly in IPL 2022, will also be on resting from the India tour of the England 2022 squad. Visit our website to support your team.
The 17 players squad for ENG VS IND are Rohit Sharma (Capt), KL Rahul (VC), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Prasidh Krishna.
Cheteshwar Pujara, who has dropped out from the Indian squad abreast of the home Test series against Sri Lanka due to a poor chase with the bat for an extended period, has returned to the side. Notably, Pujara, while back, played incredibly well for Sussex in the County Championship, and his output has assisted him in making a return to the India National Cricket Team. In addition, Rajasthan Royals (RR) fast bowler Prasidh Krishna has been named to the Indian Test squad for the England series, while veteran pacer Ishant Sharma has been left out. Wriddhiman Saha, the wicketkeeper-batsman who has dropped ahead of the Sri Lanka series, is also not included. For more details regarding the players, visit this site.
