A 15-member squad has been announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the first two Test matches of the series against England, which begins later this month. Uncapped Dhruv Jurel was selected for the squad, shockingly replacing Ishan Kishan in the process. The five-match Test series between India and England begins on Thursday, January 25. KL Rahul and KS Bharat are also available as wicketkeeper options for the Indian team.

On along with teammate pace bowler Prasidh Krishna (quad), Shami hopes to take part in the five-match series after it begins in Hyderabad on January 25. Right now, he’s recovering from an ankle injury.
