India’s opener Shubman Gill has been ruled out of the five-match Test series against England starting from August 4 and who will replace him, which is a big question for the team. India still has two options in the form of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul. Abhimanyu Eshwaran is accompanying the team as a reserve batsman. There are also reports that the team’s management wants to call Prithvi Shah and Devadut Padakil to England instead of Gill. However, this decision of the team’s management has been challenged by former India wicketkeeper-batsman Saba Karim. In such a situation, insecurity may arise in players who are already on the team, he said.
Speaking to India News, Karim said, “I never feel bad about it because if you make an extra replacement, the players in the squad already have a lot of insecurity and they feel that the team is safe. Not at all. There is no need to create such a situation. If you show little faith in the work of the selectors. I still can’t believe the team’s governing body can make such a demand. But if that happens, it’s not okay.

If a former wicketkeeper batsman needs a replacement, he should discuss it with the selectors, especially with the president. However, the selection committee will decide which player will be included. The question here is why do they need a replacement when they have already reserved enough starters. It is difficult to say here what is behind this demand for team management.
