‘Aur Captain saab ka kya?’ – Fans react as few Team India players set to leave for England to prepare for Test Championship final on Tuesday

The final of the Test Championships for the 2021-23 cycle is scheduled to take place in the Oval, London, from June 7 to 11.

India sends players to England for Test Championship final

Before the Test Championship final versus Australia at The Oval beginning on June 7, the former India captain Virat Kohli is scheduled to depart for the United Kingdom on Tuesday. Along with Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, and Jaydev Unadkat, the 34-year-old batter will play for the team.

After losing the crucial match against Gujarat Titans on Sunday at M. Chidambaram Stadium, Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli, is currently eliminated from the Indian Premier League. He is now free to compete in the World Test Championship. Based on reports by Sportstar, experts at the National Cricket Academy have deemed Unadkat and Umesh Yadav to be in good physical condition.

Rest of the Players will join the camp after fulfilling their IPL commitments

Mukesh Kumar, a talented pacer from Chennai, will go with Kohli in the first batch, along with three other uncapped pacers: Aniket Choudhary, Akash Deep, and Yarra Prithviraj. They are all included in the reserves. The final of the Test Championships for the 2021-23 cycle is scheduled to take place in the Oval, London, from June 7 to 11. There would also be a reserve day if need be.

Moreover, new rules like the abolishment of soft signals, a mandatory requirement of helmets and protective gear in dangerous field positions and the viability of runs if the ball hits the wickets in a free hit, will all be in place.

After completing his IPL duties, Rohit Sharma will join the team. Therefore head coach Rahul Dravid will have to oversee the training process. KL Rahul, who sustained an injury while playing for India against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, will be missed. Team India named Ishan Kishan as his replacement for the final game.

Here are the full squad for both teams:

India: Rohit Sharma (capt), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishan Kishan, KS Bharat (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat.

Australia: Pat Cummins (captain), Scott Boland, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Todd Murphy, Matthew Renshaw, Steve Smith (vice-captain), Mitchell Starc, David Warner
