Since Team India was selected for the tour of England, there has been debate on the basis of which Abhimanyu Eshwaran was selected as standby. Things have also come to a head when the team wants to take young batsmen Prithvi Shah and Devadath Padikkal to England, but selection committee chairman Chetan Sharma is reluctant to do so. How did Ishwaran have been placed in the stand-by squad for the England team despite his poor performance in the 2019-20 Ranji season and his run-out in India-A’s New Zealand tour?
A source from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told PTI on condition of anonymity, “Shubman Gill is out of the UK tour due to injury. He needs at least three months to become fit. “Last month, the team’s management manager sent a letter to former fast bowler Chetan Sharma asking him to send two other starters to the UK,” he said. Although Gill is aware of the injury, it is believed that Sharma did not pay much attention to the team’s management request. It remains to be seen whether the team’s governing body will issue a formal formal request to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to send Shah and Padikkal. Shah is also the convener of the selection committee.

The Shah can be sent directly from Sri Lanka to England
“The BCCI president has not yet received a formal request to send Shah and Padikkal,” the sources said. Both batsmen are currently in Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series, but both will leave for Britain after the tour ends on July 26. But I think the team management wants to put them on the team first. In fact, if Sharma listened to the team’s request last month, Shah and Padikkal could have reached England in time for the practice match. Asked whether the team’s governing body specifically asked Shaw to send him, the source said, “Let them do the official mail and then take it forward.” In addition, Prithvi is currently part of Sri Lanka’s limited overs team and is focused on the series. There are 23 players on the UK tour and even if we don’t count Eshwaran, he still has three specialist openers.
