New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday announced 15 men squad for the upcoming three-match Test series against South Africa.
The announcement comes as a setback for KL Rahul as he has been dropped from the team following his struggling form. This means Rohit Sharma moves up the batting order.
After struggling to hit his stride, KL Rahul got the axe, which could well mean Rohit Sharma gets bumped up the order to open the innings.
Here’s the full squad
Virat Kohli (Capt), Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (Vice-Captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Shubman Gill
