India Tour Of England: Why Kapil Dev said Prithvi Sau should not be sent to England now


New Delhi
Former India captain Kapil Dev feels the Board of Control for Cricket in India should not think of sending the opener to England to consider an option for injured Shubman Gill ahead of the five-Test series against England. There is speculation that Prithvi Shaw, who is on the white-ball tour of Sri Lanka, may be sent to England as a backup opener.

The Indian cricket team in England is concerned about the fitness of Gill, who is doubtful to play in the first Test in Nottingham from August 4, and speculation is rife whether India will send a back-up. The Indian Cricket Board’s vote is yet to come on this. The only information available so far is that Gill has a leg injury. It is not known what the injury is and in which leg it is.

Kapil said in an interview, ‘I do not agree with the move to add a new opener to the team. The team has already selected the openers. Those who are with the team should be given a chance to play. If you send a new player, it doesn’t send a good message.

POLL: Should Prithvi Shaw be sent to England as a replacement for Shubman Gill?
Kapil said that the third option is not needed. Kapil said, ‘Only Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli can talk more about this. But in my opinion this is not the right move. The players who are with you should be supported.
