India vs England 2018, 2nd Test, Squad Leaked: Hours before the scheduled start of play the playing XI for both teams was revealed after a Twitter user named ‘Bumrah’ took to the social platform and posted the squads for both the teams. We cannot vouch for the authenticity of the leak, but according to it, both teams were apparently looking to field the same side. For India, there was no change, no Cheteshwar Pujara in the side, Kohli seems to be backing Dhawan and Rahul again. It seems Hardik Pandya is also going to retain his spot.
Here is the tweet:
