Cheteshwar Pujara has made his comeback after being dropped for the home series against Sri Lanka. However, he showed some great form by plundering runs in the County Championship playing for Sussex. Apart from him, Shreyas Iyer has also been called up to the Test squad. The fifth and final Test of the series is set to be played from July 1 in Birmingham.
Prasidh Krishna has also been rewarded for his efforts while the pace sensation Umran Malik hasn’t been picked in the Test squad. Many experts including Sunil Gavaskar and Kevin Pietersen backed him to play the Test match in England. India are currently leading the series 2-1 and have a chance of winning it after a long time.
