England call up Dawson and Jennings
England have called up two uncapped players in Hampshire’s Liam Dawson and Durham’s Keaton Jennings to bolster their injury plagued Test squad in India.
The pair will link up with Alastair Cook’s side in time for the third Test in Mumbai and replace 19-year-old Haseeb Hameed, who needs surgery on a fractured finger, and Surrey’s Zafar Ansari, who has a back injury.
Jennings had a stellar season for Durham in Division One of the County Championship, finishing top of the run charts with 1,548 at an average of 64.5. He scored seven hundreds, including one double ton.
The Durham opener is currently in the England Lions squad in the United Arab Emirates having been appointed captain of the side and should arrive in India on December 5th subject to Visa approval.
The man Jennings is replacing, Hameed will return to England shortly to undergo surgery to a hand injury.
Dawson has been called into the squad to cover for Zafar Ansari who is suffering from back spasms, the Hampshire spinner is in Bangladesh at the moment where he is turning out for the Rangpur Riders in the BPL.
Ansari will be treated by the England medical staff before returning home on December 8.
Dawson had an indifferent County Championship but it is believed that his ability with the bat has led to him being preferred over Jack Leach who was the leading wicket-taker among slow bowlers in the Championship.
