India vs England: Rohit Sharma To Lead In ODIs And T20Is: The Team India selections for the white-ball series against England, which will be played after the postponed fifth Test, were released by the BCCI on Thursday. From July 7 to July 17, India and England will play three T20Is and the same number of ODIs.
Rohit Sharma, the captain, will return for the white-ball matches after being disqualified from the postponed fifth Test, according to a BCCI announcement.
During India’s tour game against Leicestershire, Rohit Sharma tested positive for COVID-19. Arshdeep Singh, a promising bowler, was also called for his first ODI.
Arshdeep was a member of India’s T20I squad for the two games against Ireland, although he was not selected for either game’s starting lineup.

The match will be played in Edgbaston in Birmingham from July 1–5.
