New Delhi: Opener Lokesh Rahul was Tuesday drafted into the Indian squad ahead of the second Test against England, starting from Thursday at Visakhapatnam.

Rahul, who suffered a hamstring injury during the first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur, made 76 in a Ranji Trophy match for Karnataka against Rajasthan and his return will boost a batting line-up which is missing Rohit Sharma down the order.
