20 make it to the Indian squad for WTC finals & English Tour | Sir Jadeja is back; Hardik misses the bus
No sooner the IPL got shelved, BCCI announced a full-strength Indian Test squad for the much-awaited WTC final & England tour this Friday.
A 20-players-strong main squad with KL Rahul & Wriddhiman Saha’s selection subject to fitness clearance alongside 4 stand-bies has been picked up by the selectors.
Team India will be flying down to Southampton early next month where it’ll take on New Zealand for defending the 1st World Test Champions title from 18th June.
Afterward, the team heads to England for an overseas 5 match test series scheduled from August to September.
No points for guessing who’s returning to international action. “Rockstar” Jadeja will be making his comeback to the Indian side after displaying the great form in the IPL season. Jasprit Bumrah & Hanuma Vihari have also secured a place on the squad.
What’s surprising but not so surprising is that Hardik Pandya has been passed over this time for selection.
