To further strengthen the preparations for this series, BCCI has listed two more players with Team India.
Two more players included before the Nagpur Test

Jayant Yadav from Haryana, who has played for India before, and Pulkit Narang from Delhi have been added to the squad as net shooters. Narang currently plays for the army.
