Even before the start of the five-match Test series against England, Shubman Gill’s injury suffered a major setback for India. The suspense remains about how many Schubman will miss a Test due to an injury, but the first two to three Tests will be very difficult to play. In such a situation, the big question before Virat Kohli and the team management is who will replace this Punjab opener in the playing XI. Two contestants are in the form of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul. However, if the reports are to be believed, the selectors may ask Prithvi Shah to go to England soon after the Sri Lankan tour is over.

According to the news of ‘Times of India’, selectors may try Prithvi Shah as Rohit Sharma’s starting partner. Shaw traveled to England after his tour of Sri Lanka, but was not available for selection before the third Test. Shah will have to wait a long time for the cornerstone and other rules. Mayank Agarwal is a good choice as an opener, but his latest form stats are not special. On the other hand, KL Rahul has not played a Test match for the last two years. In such a situation, trusting him can cost the team too much.

Prithvi Shah made a run for domestic cricket this year, but despite this he was ignored for the tour of England. Reports have surfaced that BCCI had previously advised Shah to lose weight. Former national selector Sarandeep Singh raised questions about Shah’s exclusion from the team. He told me, ‘I’m quite surprised by God’s choice. I mean, Prithvi Shah is an internationally experienced player who has also played Test matches. They are in good form. He had to be included in the team. Shah is currently touring Sri Lanka with India, where the team has to play a series of three ODIs and three T20s.
