Shaw, Yadav to join India squad in England

Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav will bolster India's batting lineup for their Test series in England after being named as injury replacements on Monday.

Shaw and Yadav are currently in Sri Lanka playing a limited-overs series. They will switch because of injuries to Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar, the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced.

It was not immediately clear whether they would take part in the final two Twenty20 matches in Colombo. Yadav played a key role in India's win on Sunday.

Virat Kohli's Test side stayed in England and were given a break after the WTC final in Southampton.
