For India, 16 members led by Rohit Sharma will face England. Wicketkeeper batsman Dhruv Jurel has been called up to the international squad for the first time and is the only newcomer to the squad. While Mohammed Shami is still nursing his World Cup 2023 ankle injury, Virat Kohli has pulled out of the first two Tests due to personal reasons. Rajat Patidar was named as Kohli’s replacement.

Jasprit Bumrah will lead India’s pace pack that includes Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar. However, India are likely to play a spin-oriented bowling attack featuring the trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel.

Ahead of the opening day of the series, the tourists announced their starting line-up. Ben Stokes has recovered from knee surgery and is back as England captain. Mark Wood was the only seamer in the squad as the visitors were accompanied by three specialist spinners headed by Jack Leach, along with a fourth in Joe Root. Youngster Rehan Ahmed, who is set to embark on his maiden tour of India, will play alongside debutant left-arm spinner Tom Hartley from Lancashire.

Harry Brook’s absence for personal reasons has made room for both Jonny Bairstow and Ben Foakes in the squad. Foakes will retain the wicket after much speculation about who will don the gloves.

Match Prediction: Who will win the first India vs England match?

England’s Bazball Test approach has paid them rich dividends, but the India tour provides the ultimate Litmus test of their revolutionary approach. India have a cheat code in the form of the Ashwin-Jadeja spin duo and have lost just three Tests at home since 2013. On a surface that is expected to change soon, India will go ahead with the upper hand clear, but has an unpredictable situation. challenge before them.
