The England selectors have added Durham opening batsman Keaton Jennings and Hampshire all-rounder Liam Dawson in the squad for the remainder of the Test series against India.
Jennings scored two massive unbeaten knocks of 201 and 171 for Durham in last season's County Championship games against Surrey and Nottinghamshire respectively and will replace Haseeb Hameed, who will head back home with a hand injury.
The 24-year-old has played 72 first-class matches till now and has 4272 runs at an average of 35.89 including 12 centuries and 16 fifties.
On the other hand, Dawson, has already played a game each for England in the One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals but is yet to feature for them in the longer format.
He will take the place of Zafar Ansari, who is struggling with a back injury. The 24-year-old will continue to stay with the squad in India though.
England may also consider giving Ben Duckett another crack at the opening position alongside Alastair Cook after he struggled to combat the spin of Ravichandran Ashwin in the middle order and was eventually dropped for the third Test in Mohali.
The England players have been given a five-day break and will assemble ahead of the fourth Test in Mumbai which begins on 8th December. They trail India by 2-0 with two more matches to go.
