The BCCI has not sent any selectors to the UK, where the Indian team has just played the final of the World Test Championship (WTC Final). Given the restrictions on travel from India to the UK, there is no guarantee that any member of the selection committee will be in England for the five-Test series starting on August 4. However, more than a bilateral series, the tour will act as a test of bench strength apart from giving newcomers a chance to shine. Along with this, for Sanju Samson, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik and Kunal Pandya, besides Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, this tour will be their last chance to shine for India before the second phase of IPL 2021.
