  • Lord's will play host to the game

Leg-spinner Adil Rashid could earn an England Test recall to face India if he changes his mind over red-ball cricket, coach Trevor Bayliss said Thursday, with the slow bowler likely to prove a key weapon on wickets baked dry by the country's ongoing heatwave. The Indian skipper endured a woeful tour here in 2014, while the English pacer is now on the recovery path for the Test series.

The A game served as warm-up game for the likes of India vice-captain Rahane, opener Murali Vijay, Karun Nair and Pant, who are all part of the Test squad announced yesterday. But he is expected to comeback during second Test.

"Bhuvi's injury (stiff back) is a real setback for India". A proper implementation of a strategy against the Chinaman from Kanpur who had laid a siege earlier was indicative of very shrewd analysis.

About Bumrah, Tendulkar felt that he was missed more during the ODI series.

Swann said that the pitches will be bereft of any assistance and this should help the Indian batsmen to dig deep and pile on big scores which would then help the spinners. In the match, Bhuvneshwar didn't look at his best, bowling seven overs for 49 runs and dropping a catch.

The ground will host the opening test from August 1-5, having been re-introduced to the historic series in 2015, after the ground was overlooked two years prior in 2013. "Our squad is pretty settled". He also bowls a good length and went for just 20-odd on a lovely batting wicket at Nottingham.

Top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who has been playing County Championship cricket for Headingley-based Yorkshire, is also included in the squad. "He wants to be involved in what's happening and I'm sure that will be exactly the same throughout that game".

It wasn't all doom and gloom, however.

The selectors resisted the temptation of handing out Test selection based on limited-overs performances two matches after captain Virat Kohli had said Kuldeep and fellow wristspinner Yuzvendra Chahal had made a serious case for Test selection.

Rashid's last Test appearance came in India in December 2016. "Instead, that will play into India's hands to be honest because 80 percent of the batsmen haven't played against Kuldeep yet", he added.
