Mumbai: Star Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will be rested for the three-match T20I series against England.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that both Ashwin and Jadeja will be rested for the three T20I matches, making way for second-rung spinners Amit Mishra and Parvez Rasool.
The duo starred for Team India in the five-match Test series against England, which the home side won 4-0. The two combined to take a total of 56 wickets in the five-match Test series.
The three T20I series between India and England is set to get underway on Thursday, January 26, when India celebrates its Republic Day.
England have so far had a disappointing outing in India, losing the Test series 4-0, and suffering a 2-1 defeat in the three-match ODI series.
