While there were theories that Prithvi Shaw may travel to England as a trade player for Shubman Gill, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has now excused the hypothesis and has expressed that it will not be sending in any players for Gill. The 21-year-old was managed out of the five-match Test series against England because of a shin injury that will least require three months to mend.
India has enough back-up in the initial space and Mayank Agarwal is probably going to open close by Rohit Sharma in the initial Test that beginnings on August 4.
Aside from Agarwal, the group has KL Rahul, and furthermore Abhimanyu Easwaran as a reserve alternative. The circumstance of Gill’s physical issue is awful for India, as the administration was enthusiastic about giving a long rope to the adolescent.
In any case, with a capable substitution accessible in Mayank Agrawal and Rahul, the BCCI is happy with the alternatives accessible to browse inside the group.
Shaw’s name was doing the rounds because of his colossal accomplishment in the Vijay Hazare Trophy recently. Yet, until further notice, the right-hand hitter needs to sit tight for his odds in the Test arrangement.
“When Prithvi Shaw was not considered in the pool of 24 players who traveled, why should it be any different now,” said by the BCCI Source to CricketNext.
Aside from Shaw, even Devdutt Padikkal’s name was being talked about to supplant Shubman Gill at the top. The Karnataka player’s stunning ascent was the narrative of the thirteenth release of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
He scored in excess of 400 runs for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and made the selectors consider his run-scoring capacity. Be that as it may, the BCCI isn’t quick to push the southpaw in the group, at this time.
“As for Devdutt Padikkal, well, he’s a great talent but doesn’t deserve to be pushed to the wall like this. His time will come,” added by Source.
