The third Test, a Day/Nighter, begins right here on Wednesday.
“Team India fast bowler Umesh Yadav appeared for a fitness test on Sunday, 21st February at Motera. He has cleared his fitness test and has been added to the squad for the last two Tests of the ongoing Paytm India-England Test series,” mentioned the BCCI in an announcement.
“Shardul Thakur has been released from the squad to take part in the Vijay Hazare Trophy,” it added.
Thakur performs for Mumbai.
Yadav had suffered a calf muscle damage throughout the Melbourne Test in opposition to Australia in December, ruling him out for the relaxation of that collection.
There is a chance that India may play three pacers in the pink-ball Test.
The 4-match collection is at the moment locked 1-1 after England gained the opener and India got here again to clinch the second sport in Chennai.
India squad for the last two Tests:
Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper), R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Md. Siraj, Umesh Yadav.
