England have named a 15 member squad for the 3rd test against India in Headingly, Leeds. They have called back Dawid Malan into the test side and Chris Woakes has not been named again. The unorthodox opener Dom Sibley who opened for England in the first two tests has been dropped from the squad for the 3rd test.
Dawid Malan called back to England squad
England are 1-Nil down in the series. They could have lost 2 in 2 if not for rain and they will be extremely disappointed with the way they have played the final day at Lord’s to concede a 1-0 lead to India.
England’s top order failed miserably in both the games that is 4 innings in total. The batting unit has been carried by their captain Joe Root who has 2 centuries in 2 games so far. England are terribly missing their superstar all rounder in Ben Stokes and the other senior batsman in Jos Buttler hasn’t put his hand up in the first 2 games.
The 3rd test is starting on 25th of August and England have named their squad that has 2 shocking omissions including Zak Crawley and Dom Sibley. Dom Sibley played the first 2 games whereas Zak Crawley was in the squad. England have called back their now T20I specialist in Dawid Malan to the test squad and here’s what Chris Silverwood had to say about Dawid Malan’s inclusion.
Dawid Malan deserves his opportunity in the Test arena. He has a lot of experience across all formats and, if called upon, I am confident that he can come and do well on his home ground. In the limited time he has played first-class cricket this season, he has shown what he is capable of, scoring a highly accomplished 199 for Yorkshire against Sussex at Headingley in June
