Rahul and Jadeja Return, Kohli Still Absent in India Final Three Test Squad Against England


Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja have been included in India final three Test squad against England after recovering from their injuries, providing a much-needed boost to the team. However, Virat Kohli remains absent due to family reasons.

Their return brings experience to the squad, pending clearance from the medical team, reflecting BCCI’s cautious approach towards player fitness.

While their inclusion stabilizes the team, the absence of key players like Mohammed Shami, Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer poses challenges for captain Rohit Sharma. Shami’s injury leaves a gap in the fast-bowling department, while Kohli’s absence deprives India of his batting prowess.

Moreover, Iyer’s withdrawal due to back stiffness opens opportunities for Rajat Patidar and Sarfaraz Khan in the middle order.

To strengthen the bowling attack, Mohammed Siraj returns to the squad, while Akash Deep replaces Avesh Khan to provide additional firepower.

The third Test of the series, currently tied at 1-1, is scheduled to begin on February 15 in Rajkot.

India’s squad for the final three Tests includes Rohit Sharma (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Sarfaraz Khan, Rajat Patidar, Ravindra Jadeja, KS Bharat (wk), Dhruv Jurel (wk), Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Mohammed Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, and Akash Deep.
