The three-day match has been accorded first-class status, a first for India in many years. Meaning this will be treated as an official match. So, there will be team selection head-ache for the tourists, especially the wicketkeeper's role.

With Rishabh Pant and Wriddhiman Saha still unavailable, thanks to COVID-19, India are certain to pick KL Rahul. And the likes of batsman Mayank Agarwal and pacer Mohammed Siraj may get a chance to prove their worth.

Yes, the match will be played behind closed doors with the Indian contingent already reporting multiple COVID-19 positive cases.
