India vs England 2nd Test Update

India vs England 2nd Test Update: Due to Visa issue, Shoaib Bashir could not reach on India with the England team. After completion of the visa issue, Bashir is set to debut against India in 2nd test match in Vizag.

England made two changes to their playing XI from their side, the 20-year-old off-spinner Shoaib Bashir and a pacer James Anderson. Anderson became the oldest seamer to bowl in a Test in India.

Shoaib Bashir was included in England’s squad for the five-match test series against India but couldn’t participate in the first test in Hyderabad due to visa issues. The delay in his visa approval, attributed to his Pakistani heritage, he faced a setback after a training camp in Abu Dhabi, causing him to miss the transfer with his teammates to Hyderabad for the first test. He had to return to London and, after obtaining approval, arrived in India last weekend. He will be replacing Jack Leach in the playing XI. Leach suffered a knee injury while fielding on the first day of the first test match in Hyderabad. Basir played only 6 first class matches, taking 10 wickets.
