Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav got a Test call for the England series. The duo may not take part in the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka. The Board of Control for Cricket in India said in a statement: ” All-rounder Washington Sundar had taken an injection on his right-hand bowling finger. However, his recovery will take longer than expected and he is not bowling-fit. He is ruled out of the remainder of the tour.”
“Fast bowler Avesh Khan suffered a blow to his left thumb on Day 1 of the warm-up game. He was taken for an X-Ray and the result confirmed a fracture. A specialist was consulted for further management of his injury. He is ruled out of India’s Tour of England.”
“The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav as replacements.”
The five-match Test series between England and India will start from August 4 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
