However, for India, it will be going to have a tough game with the form England has currently. The bad news from the Indian side is their captain Rohit Sharma is likely to miss the game as he again tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday evening.

Mayank Agarwal has been added to the squad as a like-to-like replacement for Rohit Sharma. If Rohit fails to recover then Pujara is expected to open with Gill in the match. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah is set to lead team India. In the practice game, Virat Kohli was looking in good touch and he will be crucial for his side in this game.
