Yashasvi Jaiswal has replaced Ruturaj Gaikwad as a backup player in the World Test Championship Final squad. Ruturaj will be unable to travel to the UK for the match as he is getting married on June 2-3. Ruturaj was one of the three backup players for the ICC final. Suryakumar Yadav and Mukesh Kumar will travel to London as backup players.
On Sunday morning, Jaiswal practised with the red ball at Bombay Gymkhana with Zubin Barucha. Zubin Bharucha is a director of High Performance at the Rajasthan Royals. Jaiswal already holds a UK visa. So, the 21-year-old will fly to London tonight.
