India have called up Naman Ojha to the England tour as a replacement for the injured Wridhiman Saha. Ojha has been in superb form for India A recently, scoring heavily against Australia A in their home conditions.

According to the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association, Ojha is expected to leave for England by August 4 to join the squad for the fourth Test, which starts from August 7. Ojha, got a call after scoring three centuries during India “A” tour Down Under. During the tour, he has smashed an unbeaten 219, a 101 not out and 110; averaging 430 runs in three innings.

Ojha said, “I got the news from Sanjay Pateria. I don’t know how to express my feelings. To play a Test match is a matter of great pride for all cricketers. I am extremely lucky to have been selected in the team and if I get the chance to play for India, I will try to give it my best.”

He added, “I am not worried about variation in condition as if I get a chance, will try to maintain the same batting form.”
