The Four Test Match Series between India and England is going to start from tomorrow (February 5) onwards.
The first Test between India and England will be played at Chennai tomorrow (February 5) i.e. Kuldeep Yadav is all set to return to the Test squad after two years, but he could get a hard Competition from Axar Patel, who can do both batting and left-arm spin bowling.
It can be difficult for Team India to select a playing XI. Axar Patel can show his Skills in batting and he can be used as the option as Ravindra Jadeja.
On the other hand, left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav is also a big contender for selection.
Washington and Ravichandran Ashwin is confirmed to play in Playing XI. It will be very difficult to decide who will be the third spinner with Sundar and Ashwin.
Kuldeep Yadav played his last Test match against Australia in Sydney in 2019. In that match, Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets in the innings.
All cricket fans on social media are demanding the inclusion of Kuldeep Yadav in the first Test playing XI against England.
Aakash Chopra Picks his India's XI for the 1st Test match against England:
1. Rohit Sharma.
2. Shubman Gill.
3. Che Pujara.
4. Virat Kohli (C).
5. Ajinkya Rahane.
6. Rishabh Pant (WK).
7. Washington Sundar.
8. Ravi Ashwin.

But according to me
Axar is good for white ball cricket..he is more sort of bowler who contains run
& One left arm is good enough i.e Kuldeep Yadav
So 5 bowlers should be
Washington Sundar (Home Adv & in red hot form)

Kuldeep Yadav, who has not played a Test match for 2 years, believes it will be like his debut if he gets a chance in the first Test at Chennai. Kuldeep Yadav made his Test debut in Dharamsala against Australia in 2017.
Kuldeep Yadav has taken 24 wickets for India in 6 Tests so far. Kuldeep Yadav was also present on the tour of Australia with Team India but sat out through the entire series.
Ajinkya Rahane and coach Ravi Shastri had also praised Kuldeep Yadav as Kuldeep had practiced Indian batsmen at the nets without any selfishness.
