Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav were among the wickets too.

Ajinkya Rahane, the vice-captain, is missing the match due to injury.

“Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has mild swelling around his left upper hamstring. This has been addressed by an injection. He is not available for the three-day first-class warm-up game. The BCCI Medical Team is monitoring him, and he is expected to fully recover well in time for the first Test against England starting from 4th August at Nottingham,” BCCI said in a statement on Tuesday.

Washington and Avesh Khan were named in the CS XI side due to a request from ECB, as their original players were missing due to injury/being named close contacts of COVID positive people.

Unfortunately, Avesh was injured on the first day while fielding a ball off his own bowling. He hurt his left thumb and is likely to miss the rest of the series.
