The Indian team is scheduled to play the World Test Championship final against New Zealand at Southampton from June 18-22.
Abhimanyu Easwaran and Priyank Panchal will be in contention along with rookie sensation Devdutt Padikkal when the selectors on Friday pick a 30-strong India squad for the four-month trip to United Kingdom.
Test Series Details:
1- Nottingham (Aug 4-8)
2- Lord’s (August 12-16)
3- Leeds (Aug 25-29)
4- Oval (Sep 2-6)
5- Manchester (Sep 10-14).
A 14-day hard quarantine for passengers travelling from India to the UK and the existing COVID-19 situation in the country has forced BCCI to pick at least 30 members in the squad which will have some automatic choices and the best performers from India.
There will be very few places that are up for grabs. An extra opener’s slot could see a three-way fight between Abhimanyu Easwaran, Priyank Panchal and rookie Devdutt Padikkal.
Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Priyank Panchal/Devdutt Padikkal. Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, KL Rahul, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar, Hardik Pandya.
