India vs England Tests: India has announced its team for the last two Tests in the five-match series for the Southampton and Oval Tests and Prithvi Shaw and Hanuma Vihari has been picked. The two cricketers, Prithvi and Hanuma have been performing outstandingly well in the domestic circuit and that has prompted the call-up.
Here is the Indian team for the last two Tests.
Virat Kohli (C), Dhawan, Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Pujara, Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ashwin, Jadeja, Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Shami, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Karun Nair, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hanuma Vihari
BCCI confirmed it as they posted it on their Twitter handle.
Meanwhile, resuming at 311-9 on Day Five, England’s second inning lasted just 17 balls in the first session before off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took the wicket of James Anderson (11) as England were bowled out for 317. Adil Rashid remained not out at 33.
“A complete Test for us. There was no panic, and we were outplayed in only one game out of the last 5, and that was Lord’s. We dominated in this game because we put runs on the board and then the bowlers did well, they were waiting and ready, even Ashwin did well with his injury. The bowling was ready to take 20 wickets again, and I’m glad the batsmen stepped up. So we, as batsmen, did well to give them a cushion for the bowlers to go hard,” said captain Kohli in the post-match presentation.
