Why was Mohammed Siraj removed from India’s squad for the second Test? BCCI Gives Answer

Mohammed Siraj was released from the India squad for the second test match against England.

India’s right-arm pacer Mohammed Siraj is not part of India’s squad in the second test against England; fortunately, he is not injured and might be joining the team in the next test matches, but if he is not injured, then why is Mohammed Siraj not in the team? BCCI reveals the reason behind this decision by posting this on X (formerly Twitter).

Avesh Khan has replaced Mohammed Siraj in the India squad for the match. Rajat Patidar is included in the playing XI, and Sarfaraz Khan has to wait for his debut in test cricket for India. India lost their first test match against England by 28 runs, and this time they will be facing the visitors at Vizag to settle the score with England, where the visitors will be looking to extend the lead further to build more pressure on India.

England’s team also got a new member in the name of Sohaib Bashir, who has replaced Jack Leach for the second test match as the left-arm bowler got injured during the first test match, and James Anderson is back in the team by replacing Mark Wood. England is playing with only one pacer.

Here are the playing XI of both teams:

India: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma (capt), Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Shreyas Iyer, Srikar Bharat (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Mukesh Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav

England: Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes (capt), Ben Foakes, Rehan Ahmed, Tom Hartley, Shoaib Bashir, James Anderson.
