As pacer Ishant Sharma playing the first Test against England is uncertain due to a viral infection, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has asked Ashok Dinda to join the squad.


India will take on England in the first Test at Ahmedabad on Thursday. The two teams will be playing four Tests against each other in the series.


Given the pre-match preparations, it won't be a surprise if India plays three spinners against England.
