The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) under new Chairman of Selectors MSK Prasav has finally announced the teams for the ODI and T2o series against England. This was after a lot of drama when due to some “logistical issues” the announcement of the teams was postponed for some unknown reasons.
Now finally the team has been announced. Virat Kohli will be leading the team in both the ODI’s and the T20’s with Yuvraj Singh making a comeback into the team after some length of time.
