New Delhi: After being ignored by the selectors despite his good run in domestic cricket, southpaw Gautam Gambhir was on Wednesday included into the squad for the upcoming England tour.

The BCCI confirmed the news through their official account on Twitter.

18 players have been named for the England tour where India will play five Tests and the inclusion of Stuart Binny is a decision which has raised many eyebrows. Considering the seaming conditions overseas, the selectors have named five pacers.

BCCI also announced the team for the Bangladesh tour. Suresh Raina will lead the squad in Bangladesh in the absence of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
