Wriddhiman Saha would be taking the responsibility ahead of the young Rishabh Pant. Though Pant is in the 15 member squad he would not be taking the field in the 1st test starting tomorrow. Ashwin would make a comeback in the test team.
India would be eyeing a record 11th test series win at home with the home season kicking off on Wednesday.
