India Announce England Squad

India have announced their squad to face England in a one-off Test and three ODIs in August 2014.

Although India haven’t played a Test since 2006, when they beat England at Taunton, this is a strong side and a fiercely contested series is expected.

Indian captain Mithali Raj is one of the all-time greats, having scored more than 6,500 runs in a 12-year career.

Meanwhile, fast bowler Jhulan Goswami, with over 200 career international wickets, will be the big threat to England’s batsmen.

  • Mithali Raj (Capt)
  • Karuna Jain
