The much-awaited Test series between India and England will begin on August 4. However, before the start of the match, Team India suffered a major setback. First place Shubman Gill suffered an injury and left the series, while Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan have denied injury. Thus India has lost three key players.
According to sources, the BCCI is looking to pick Prithvi Shah, Suryakumar Yadav and Jayant Yadav as replacements for the three players who have been ruled out of the England series due to injury. Team India captain Virat Kohli is in talks with BCCI about this.
Shubman Gill suffered an injury during the final of the World Test Championship. Washington Sundar and fast bowler Avesh Khan suffered finger injuries while playing for Country XI. Sources said that Avesh Khan has a fracture in his finger.
That is, even before the start of the series, 3 Indian players have been out of the team. Kohli requests Shubman Gill to replace him in England. However, the BCCI did not support it. It is expected that three players will leave Prithvi Shah, Suryakumar and Jayant Yadav for the England series.
Shah and Suryakumar are currently in Sri Lanka. The ODI series is over and gearing up for the T20 series. Still Jayant Yadav is in India. Suryakumar won the series award for the best performance in the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
Team India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is also suffering from hamstring pain. In such a situation, he is likely to be in the first Test. Suryakumar could play in his place. It is being said that Mayank Agarwal or Prithvi Shah can play with Rohit Sharma as an opener.
