Will three players go to England?
Let us tell you that Shubman Gill was out of England tour due to injury two weeks ago and now he has returned to India. Let us tell you that BCCI had refused to send any other player to England in place of Shubman Gill, but now it will be interesting to see what the board will do after the injuries to Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan. Well, the Indian team has no dearth of options. Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar are seen in color in Sri Lanka. It is possible that BCCI will send 2-3 players from Sri Lanka to England.
