If you all are wondering the squad for the test series, it looks like this – Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravi Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohd. Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav. Talking about the Squad, Board of Control for Cricket in India has chosen Shikhar Dhawan over the injured Murali Vijay for the test series starting from July 25. Dhawan has been in fine one-day form and not only he scored truckloads of runs in the Champions Trophy but also looked in commanding touch, batting as good as he could.

Vijay, who suffered a wrist injury during Australia’s tour of India, has complained of pain in his right wrist, while playing a preparatory match ahead of the Sri Lankan tour. The BCCI medical team has therefore advised that Vijay should continue his rehabilitation program for some time and then resume playing cricket. After their convincing win over the West Indies Team last month, team India has shown some great confidence and will be looking forward to seal the series as soon as they can and stay at the top of the ranking table.
