The Indian return to colours after a short break as they get ready to play against England at Southampton’s Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. Rohit Sharma will return to the team after being ruled out of the COVID-19 delayed Edgbaston Test due to a COVID-19 infection. Other senior players including Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah, however, will be available from the next match. As India gets its regular captain back, England will play under their newly appointed white-ball skipper, Joss Buttler.
The opener was named the full-time skipper after outgoing skipper Eoin Morgan’s retirement from international cricket last month.
Following the Test defeat at Ebdgaston, India will be desperate to start their white-ball campaign on a winning note, but the absence of senior players will surely be a cause of concern for the team management.
The last time, both teams came face to face, the Men In Blue defeated England 3-2 but that was in home conditions. In their backyard, the English team will have an edge over the visitors, especially with their recent form.
