It was being told in the reports that the team management wants to call Prithvi Shaw to England, but now it will not happen. Kapil Dev had also objected to this.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken a decision regarding Team India’s opener Shubman Gill, who was injured on the England tour. According to the report, the BCCI has asked Shubman Gill to come back to India. Along with this, the BCCI has also taken a decision regarding the replacement of Shubman Gill. BCCI will not send any other player to England as a replacement. For the last few days, the name of Prithvi Shaw was doing the rounds as the replacement of Shubman Gill. It was being told in media reports that the team management wants to call Prithvi Shaw to England, but now it will not happen. Kapil Dev had also objected to this.
Series will start from 4th August
A five match test series is to be played between Team India and England. This series will start from 4th August. At the same time, Shubman Gill was injured in the World Test Championship final. His injury is said to be serious. According to reports, it will take about three months for Shubman’s injury to heal. In such a situation, the BCCI has decided to call him back from the England tour. However, it is not yet clear when Shubman Gill will return to India. At the same time, the team management wants one or two openers in the team as a backup.
He can replace Shubman Gill
At the same time, the team management has already clarified that KL Rahul will not be given the responsibility of opening in place of Shubman Gill. After this, one of Mayank Agarwal and Abhimanyu Easwaran can be chosen to open with Rohit Sharma.
Quarantine period became a hindrance
As per a Cricbuzz report, the BCCI did not demand to send Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikkal to England. BCCI only wanted replacement of Shubman Gill. At the same time, Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikkal are on a tour of Sri Lanka to play the series. Here under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan, Team India has to play a series against Sri Lanka. At the same time, sending these two players to England is also not easy. Due to Corona, Sri Lanka has also been kept in the Red Zone like India. If both these players are sent to England, then after reaching there, they will have to remain quarantined for at least 10 days.
