BCCI official reveals who will replace Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar for the England series

The Indian team is preparing hard for their upcoming red-ball fixtures against England. However, even before the start of the Test series, the visitors have trimmed down the squad from 24 to 21 because of players’ injuries. The injured cricketers are Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan, who have been ruled out of the England tour.

Gill was ruled out after the World Test Championship (WTC) final last month due to a stress injury to his shins. Similarly, Avesh and Washington sustained finger injuries during the warm-up game against County Select XI.

It has now been learned that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is preparing to send the replacements as soon as possible. According to Cricbuzz, the replacements for the England tour have been picked from the Indian camp in Sri Lanka currently engaged in the limited-overs series.

As per the report, Team India’s latest batting sensation Suryakumar Yadav and explosive opener Prithvi Shaw are set to travel to the United Kingdom. There was also a request made for the other player, who could replace Avesh, but no information regarding such has been provided.

When it comes to the red-ball experience of both the players, Surya hasn’t yet played a Test match for India. However, he has appeared in 77 First-Class games, scoring 5326 runs, with 14 centuries and 26 fifties. On the other hand, Shaw has played five Tests, in which he has managed to score 339 runs with one hundred and two half-centuries.

Suryakumar Yadav defends Manish Pandey’s selection in India’s playing XI despite poor form

Indian batsman Manish Pandey has been in and out of the ODI team for quite a few years. There is no doubt about his batting prowess but the Karnataka lad has failed to impress in the last five innings in ODI cricket.

In the recently-concluded series against Sri Lanka, Pandey once again got starts in every game but he wasn’t able to fire on and score big. He scored 26, 37, and 11 runs respectively in Sri Lanka ODIs.

Before the third ODI in Colombo, India handed over five debut caps and made a total of six changes, raising questions on why Pandey wasn’t dropped from the playing XI despite his form.

Reacting to the same, Suryakumar Yadav said: “That was completely the team management’s call, I can’t get into that decision. But yes, he’s been batting really well as we saw in the practice games, we played intra-squad games also.”

Yadav also mentioned that Pandey’s unfortunate run-out in the second ODI might have prompted the team management to give another chance to him.

“And last game, you all must have seen it it was an unfortunate dismissal, he was batting really well at that time as well. So that must have been the reason but as I said, this isn’t my call,” Yadav said while defending Pandey’s dismal show with the bat.

Meanwhile, it looks unlikely that Pandey will get any more chance on the remaining tour. Youngsters like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson and Nitish Rana are waiting in the wings to capture the middle-order spots and Pandey hasn’t fired in T20Is of late either.
