India currently trail the 5-match series 0-1 after losing the opening fixture in Hyderabad by 28 runs. With Virat Kohli already unavailable for the first two Tests due to personal reasons, the injuries to Jadeja and Rahul have made matters worse for India, who find themselves under pressure after losing only their fourth Test at home since 2013.

BCCI Names Replacements

The Men’s Selection Committee have added Sarfaraz Khan, Sourabh Kumar and Washington Sundar to India’s squad. It is a maiden national call-up for Sarfaraz after scoring a truckload of runs in domestic cricket and more recently in the India A series against England Lions.
