The Indian cricket team selection committee picked a 20-member India squad for ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand. This team is for the five-match India vs England Test series in the UK on Friday.

Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari made a comeback to the Indian test squad after having to skip India vs England test series on home soil due to injury. However, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Prithvi Shaw have failed to make it to the Indian squad. 

Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah who missed the last Test against England in early March due to marriage has also returned. Meanwhile, KL Rahul and Wriddhiman Saha’s inclusion in the Test squad depend on their fitness.
