The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has rewarded Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw for their excellent performances in ODIs and T20Is. Both of them will now leave for England directly from the Sri Lanka tour. The BCCI has picked him as replacement for injured Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan for the Test series against England. The India-England Test series is starting from August 4.
Sunder, Shubman and Avesh are out
The board wrote in its note – Sundar’s right hand, which is also his bowling arm, has been injected. It will take a long time for them to recover. He is not currently fit for bowling. At the same time, fast bowler Avesh Khan suffered a thumb injury during the practice match. X-rays revealed that he had a thumb fracture. Shubman has some problem in his left leg (shin). Because of this, all three have been ruled out of the England tour. Shubman has returned to India. While Avesh and Sundar will also return soon.
Pant, Saha and Easwaran joined the team
The board wrote – Rishabh Pant has joined the team after recovering from Corona. At the same time, Wriddhiman Saha, Abhimanyu Easwaran and bowling coach Bharat Arun have also joined the team. Earlier, a board official had told that all-rounder Jayant Yadav was also to be sent to England. But some changes were made in the plan due to the quarantine requirements. Because of this Jayant will not go now.
