MUMBAI: Seamer Umesh Yadav has cleared a fitness assessment and joined India's test squad for the two tests against England in Ahmedabad, the country's cricket board said on Monday.

The 33-year-old, a veteran of 48 tests, had suffered a calf injury during the Boxing Day match in Australia and was ruled out of the first two tests in Chennai.

The four-match series is tied at 1-1 with the third test to be played from Wednesday at the Motera Stadium.
