Avesh Khan, Sundar picked to play Country Select XI

    Team India decided to field Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar in the County Select XI Cricket side. Avesh, the right-arm seamer and Sundar, the off-spinning all-rounder, will be on the County XI in the three-day warm-up match against the Indians at Chester-le-Street in Durham on Tuesday.

    Avesh Khan named for warm up match

    The three-day warm-up match between India and County Select XI has been given a first-class status which means no changes are possible after naming the XI at the toss.

    But the practice match being the only chance to have a look at the bench strength before the five-match Test series against England starts on August 4, the Indian think tank decided to play Avesh and Sundar for the County XI side.

    Rohit Sharma is captaining the Indian side as captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane both decided to sit out.

    It is understood that Kohli, Rahane, Shami, Jadeja will be sweating it out at the nets alongside Ashwin, who has already bowled a whopping 58 overs and taken seven wickets in a County game for Surrey last week.

    Regular keeper Rishabh Pant and senior reserve glovesman Wriddhiman Saha are currently isolating in London after the COVID scare but are expected to join the team before the intra-squad game scheduled at the Riverside ground during the last week of this month. It is tentatively scheduled between July 26-28.
