The England club said in a statement, “India superstars Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and the famous Krishna will all join the Leicestershire squad, which will be captained by opener Sam Evans.
Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team is currently playing a four-day warm-up match against Leicestershire in England. However, in this match the Indian batsmen did not show a very good game. The Indian team has come to England last year to play the last match of the five-match series, which could not happen due to Corona. India is leading 2-1 in this series.

This fifth match will be played at Edgbaston from July 1, before India has to play a practice match. This match has started from Thursday, for which both the teams were welcomed on the field with Bhangra and dance songs. When the players were coming on the field, there were dancers on the field who were wearing Punjabi traditional dress. On this occasion some Indian players were seen smiling.
In the four-day warm-up match, the Indian team is batting first against Leicestershire. The warm-up fixture will be an opportunity for the Men in Blue to adapt to the new environment. Star Indian players Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and the famous Krishna have been added to the rival Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) squad. They will play under county captain Sam Evans.
“India superstars Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and the famous Krishna will all join the Leicestershire squad, which will be captained by opener Sam Evans,” the England club said in a statement. If we talk about both the teams, then it is something like this.
