Many expressed their sadness after ace spinner Kuldeep Yadav was left out for the upcoming England tour.

As India announced the squad for the upcoming tour to England and the World Test Championship final as well, the team composition mostly remained the same, from the previous series against England. But there were a few names that were missing from the squad. All-rounder Hardik Pandya once again did not find a spot in the team, while Kuldeep Yadav, who has been overlooked in the playing XI for a very long time, has been finally axed. Also, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who made a comeback in the IPL, wasn’t included in the side.
