IND vs ENG: Tom Hartley and Shoaib Bashir

Fast bowler Gus Atkinson, and off-spinners Tom Hartley and Shoaib Bashir are the three uncapped players who were too good during the domestic county season. The inclusion of Hartley of Shoaib Bashir has definitely provided them strength as three matches are set to be played at Hyderabad, Rajkot, and Ranchi where the ball is for sure going to spin.

Rehan Ahmed, a teenage leg-spinner, is back in the Test team as well. He made his Test debut in Pakistan in December and took five wickets. On a somewhat flatter pitch, he was too dominant against Pakistan; now, on Indian soil against Indian class batting line-up, it will be his ultimate measure.

Surprisingly Chris Woakes didn’t get a ticket in England Test Squad, who have repeatedly performed well on the Indian pitches.
