Rishabh Pant earns maiden call-up to Indian Test team

Sidney Guerrero | 18 July, 2018, 19:24

BCCI announced 18-man squad for the three match Test series on Wednesday. His condition is being assessed and a call on him will be "made soon", the BCCI was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz. According to BCCI communique, he aggravated lower back condition during the match, and his condition is being assessed now.

Bhuvneshwar has not been named in the 18-member squad.

"Jasprit Bumrah who has been included in the squad, will be available for selection from the 2nd Test onwards based on his fitness", the release added.

At the start of the video, the 37-year-old woman is seen riding her bike along the bridge despite warning gates blocking her path. A woman has been treated for facial injuries after trying to ride her bike on a rising drawbridge in the U.S. .

That makes it vital that Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma hit the ground running at Edgbaston with rookie Shardul Thakur the other pacer in the squad. Wriddhiman Saha, who is recovering from the thumb injury he suffered during IPL 2018, has been dropped from the team. "He has been groomed for this for the last two years". That shows why he is only the third spinner, behind R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Rishabh Pant has received a maiden call-up while another wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has also been included.

There were no surprises in the batting department of the side to be led by Virat Kohli, who skipped the Afghanistan Test but a neck injury scuppered plans for a stint with Surrey. Shardul Thakur has also been kept in the 18 as back-up for the pace quartet of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and the injured Bumrah.

During the One-Day International (ODI) series, Virat Kohli had spoken of "a few surprises" in the Test team, suggesting that India might "be tempted" to include both Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep.
