Fast bowler Ollie Robinson was dropped during the Test series against New Zealand due to an old social media controversy. He has been included in the team again. Apart from this, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Karen have returned. However, fast bowler Chris Woakes has not got a place due to injury. Fast bowler Jofra Archer is also not fully fit yet after surgery. David Malan also did not succeed in making the place in the team.
Virat Kohli and Rahane are injured
Team India is playing a three-day practice match before the Test. However, captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are not playing due to injuries in the match that started on Tuesday. Rahane has a hamstring injury and has been given an injection. In such a situation, it seems difficult for him to be fit for the first Test. KL Rahul has indicated his return by scoring a century in the practice match. After Shubman Gill’s exit, Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal’s opening is believed to be fixed.
