Former India cricketer Saba Karim has raised questions about the injury of Shubman Gill, who joined Team India as an opener on the current England tour. Shubman Gill could be ruled out of the five-Test series against England from August 4 due to injury. She said Shubman Gill should not hide about his injury. If he is aware of the injury, he should not travel to England. But he did not look uncomfortable in the final of the ICC World Test Championship against New Zealand. He started well but couldn’t turn it into a big innings. New Zealand defeated India by 8 wickets in the WTC final.
Saba Kareem told News 18, ‘I am shocked that Shubman Gill tried to hide his injury. He has been working with the India team for a long time. Physics and other medical personnel are there to keep an eye on players ’injuries. One wonders how this happened and why it didn’t come earlier. Mayank Agarwal should be given priority. We acted strictly with Mayank. He was sidelined after only 2-3 successful innings.
Sri Lanka can field a second-class squad in the series against India
Gill’s absence is likely to replace Mayank Agarwal as Rohit Sharma’s starting partner. Aggarwal has not played Test cricket for a long time. He has averaged 45 in 14 Tests. Meanwhile, there are reports that Prithvi Shah has joined the England tour. He is now Shikhar Dhawan for a limited series against Sri Lanka.
The led team is in Colombo with India.
