Rumour has it that England players Jos Buttler and Jack Leach are set to return to the squad for the 5th and the final test of the ongoing series against India. England lost the 4th match brutally at Oval against the Blues and with this, went 2-1 behind in the series. Jos Buttler, who had taken a leave as he was expecting a baby, had been a major missing in the England side and his return will definitely add to the depth in their batting lineup.

England vice captain Jos Buttler and his wife Louise Buttler have given birth to their second child. It is a girl and they have named her Maggie. A picture of Jos Buttler holding the newborn in his arms got viral on all social media platforms and fans all over the world showered their love for little Maggie. Just two days after her birth, England suffered the thrashing defeat on their homeground against the visitors and Jos Buttler thus decided to rejoin the team, seeing that he is needed.
Jack Leach, on the other hand, makes his way back to the team after a long wait of almost 7 months. He played his last test for England against India in the month of march, when they had visited the foreign soil for a series. England had lost on that occasion and Jack Leach never got an opportunity to make his way back into team, until today.

The pitches in England have lately provided some extra spin and that is probably why Jack Leach is being considered by the England team. This probably might be the perfect opportunity for team India to bring in Ravichandran Aswhin who has not played a single test in this series.
England’s fifth Test squad: Joe Root (C), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Haseeb Hameed, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Craig Overton, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
