The tour will begin in Hyderabad on 25 January, after the completion of Crawley’s stint with Perth Scorchers in Australia’s KFC Big Bash League.

The squad includes three uncapped players at Test level with Surrey quick Gus Atkinson joined by spinners Tom Hartley (Lancashire) and Shoaib Bashir (Somerset).

Atkinson claimed 20 wickets in five County Championship matches this Summer at an average of 20.20.

Hartley and Bashir were both part of the England Lions squad that trained in the United Arab Emirates last month. They were joined in the UAE by vice-captain Ollie Pope and Jack Leach to step up their preparations as they return to Test duty following injury.

Leicestershire’s teenage leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed returns to the Test squad after claiming a five-wicket haul on his Test debut in Pakistan last December.
