Notably, Pujara was a vital cog in the Indian Test team until he experienced a slump last year. Subsequently, he was axed from the team for India’s last Test series against Sri Lanka, and it seemed that Pujara’s time in Tests for India might be as good as over.

Meanwhile, though he has found his place back in the team, Pujara will now need to deliver. In his last twelve Test innings for India, the batter from Saurashtra has been dismissed for single-digit scores on 8 occasions, and this could be the last chance for him to nail his place in the team. Meanwhile, the pending Test match will be played from 1st July at Birmingham.

India Squad for Test vs England:

Rohit Sharma (Capt), KL Rahul (VC), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohd Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
