It will also be very interesting to see that the T20 team will also have the same players that were included in the ODI team.

Hardik Pandya Fitness News – If the selectors choose a technically strong player, then Ajinkya Rahane can return. On the other hand, Mumbai player Suryakumar Yadav can also get a chance to play at number 5 or 6.  Significantly, Sanju Samson and Suryakumar are in the India A team. The young batsman Shubhaman Gill, who was selected as a reserve player in the series against Sri Lanka, might just play the role of the third opener but the selectors will also not be able to ignore KL Rahul’s current form and experience in Test cricket.

It will also have to be seen whether Navdeep Saini will get a chance in this two-match Test series alongside Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, and Kuldeep Yadav and who will be the third spinner in the side alongside Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja?
