The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to include pacer Avesh Khan in India’s squad for the second Test against South Africa as a replacement for Mohammed Shami, who suffers an injury.

Shami missed the first Test in Centurion and was ruled out of the second Test. The BCCI, in a release, said: “The Men’s Selection Committee has named Mr Avesh Khan as a replacement for Mr Mohd. Shami for the second Test against South Africa to be played from 3rd-7th January 2024 in Cape Town.”
