India visit England – Team leadership wants to replace, will BCCI be committed? The 5 test series of the game against England is still 2 weeks away, but the Virat Koli team from India is already suffering. The reason is that they lost 3 players in the Indian squad due to injuries with the series still underway. InsideSport.co learned from sources that the leadership of the Indian team in England has asked BCCI to replace Washington Sundar, Shubman Gill and Avesh Khan.
It is worth noting that BCCI sent 24 players to England for the trip, of which 3 are now injured. Not only that, but the team has also suffered from Covid-19 in the last few days. One of the team’s most prominent members, Rishabh Pant, joined the team on Thursday after recovering from Kovid.
Wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha & back up opener Abhimanyu Easwaran were also under quarantine and will join the team today.
Coach Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli are now very concerned that some other injuries or issues related to Covid-19 will drastically reduce their chances in the series and that is why they have asked for the replacement of the injured players.
“The team management has asked for replacements, but we have to see how we send them to England. If necessary, voters will decide on the names. We will set up a logistics post,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.co.

India visit England – Team leadership wants to replace, will BCCI be committed? InsideSport also learned that the team’s management wants to copy Pritwi Shaw, Krishna Govtam and Bhuvneshwar Kumar as players of the England series.
Most of the best footballers who are not part of the England squad are currently playing in Sri Lanka. According to a BCCI official, amid fears of Covid-19 – sending voters to the UK on time will not be easy for them.
“Elections, if necessary, can only be made by the electorate. The BCCI or the group leadership cannot impose anything on the electorate. But in the current situation, sending players to England is not an easy task, ”said a BCCI official.
Why would it be difficult for BCCI to fly players to England on time?
– The protocols related to Covid-19 in both the UK and England and Well Cricket are such that no player can join the team immediately.
– Like India, Sri Lanka is currently on the “Red List” of the British government.
– Not every player going from Sri Lanka to England will be easy. According to the British Government norm, a player must be quarantined for 12 days before joining the England team.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that voters had already rejected the request of the leadership of the Indian team to send Prithvi Shaw to replace Shubman Gill. Now with 3 players injured, voters are likely to renew the squad with some new additions.
