Following the disappointing defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe in the opening round of Global Test League fixtures, England now take on India in another home encounter, this time at Lords.
We’ve opted to make one alteration to the squad and one change to the XI. Spinner Liam Dawson bowled well in patches but struggled for effectiveness at Old Trafford and against a side strong against spin, Liam will be better served honing his skills in domestic cricket.
Toby Roland-Jones steps up from 12th man to compliment our seam bowling attack and is expected to do well on his home ground.
Liam Plunkett is another pace bowling option that still has something to offer in the longest format of the game and joins the squad as 12th man.
Be sure to revisit the site to see if Joe Root and his men can bounce back from defeat against Zimbabwe and pick up their first ever Global Test League points with a positive result against the mighty India. Many thanks for your support.
