India Test squad for Australia tour announced; Rohit, Vijay, Parthiv return

In the age of T20 bashers Shai Hope is the guy for Windies with a sound temperament without having to be a Kraigg Brathwaite

The seam attack will be led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, which now includes additional variation in the form of left-arm quick Khaleel Ahmed.

West Indies' Ashley Nurse gained quite a bit of attention on Saturday after his unique celebration during the third ODI against India in Pune. This is an important step taken by the selectors; there is a need to groom young talent keeping in mind the World Cup next year. To that end, both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik have been picked for these six matches.

Asked after the match what his celebration was all about, Nurse said that it was dedicated to an Indian friend he made during the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). The team management is expected to persist with him for his game-changing ability.

It will also be interesting to see whether skipper Virat Kohli and the team management would still want to pursue with Umesh Yadav, especially after the pacer successively failed to convert his success in Tests to limited overs cricket.




For the visitors, their biggest asset is young Shimron Hetmyer, who scored a scintillating 94 in the last game after an attractive 106 in the opening encounter. Most others though have slammed the decision outright considering Dhoni has featured in 11 fewer T20Is than Team India.

Their senior pros like experienced Marlon Samuels (13 runs) and skipper Jason Holder (50 runs) haven't really played to their potential. He comes in place of Devendra Bishoo.

Squad for the 4-Test series vs Australia: Virat Kohli (C), Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Parthiv Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
