New Delhi, 3/7 (AO Bureau):Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Team India has to play Test series from August 4. This series (India vs England) is also important because this is the first series of the team of the new season of the World Test Championship (WTC). Opener Shubman Gill is injured. According to media reports, Prithvi Shaw can be included in his place.
When the selectors had earlier selected the team for the tour of England and the World Test Championship, there was news that Prithvi Shaw was not selected because he was overweight. 21-year-old Shaw has been asked to lose weight and was then told unfit. But now the matter of sending Prithvi Shaw to England is coming to the fore. After all, who wants to include him in the team? Talking about team management, it is the captain and coach who decide on it. Is such a demand being made by Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri?
The morale of the players involved in the team will fall
Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul are present with the team as openers in England. Apart from this, there is Abhimanyu Easwaran as standby. In such a situation, even after having these three players, including Prithvi in the team, the morale of these players will fall. Looking at the record of Mayank Agarwal as an opener, he has scored 1005 runs in 21 innings of 13 Tests at an average of 48. At the same time, KL Rahul has scored 1915 runs at an average of 37 in 54 innings of 33 Tests as an opener. Abhimanyu’s international debut is yet to come.
