Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav are set to join the Indian team in the UK with the national selectors and the BCCI giving into the team management’s request for reinforcements for their series against England.
India have sought to supplement their playing contingent in the UK following a spate of injuries that has seen Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan ruled out in the lead up to the Test series.
Gill was ruled out immediately after the World Test Championship final last month because of stress injury to his shins. He, in fact, is back home in India. Avesh and Washington sustained finger injuries while playing against the Indian team during a three-day warm-up game, which ended on Thursday. The two will have to return home.
