Suryakumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw and Jayant Yadav likely to fly England for Test Series

Big news is coming from England. The names of the three replacements that were sought in the past have come out. The news is that these three names include Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav and Jayant Yadav. A BCCI official himself has confirmed this to PTI. According to him, all these three players will leave from Sri Lanka. He will have to catch a flight to England immediately after the T20 series.

Let us tell you that the names of three players have been revealed for the Test series. Earlier, the team management had sought replacements for Washington Sundar, Avesh Khan and Shubh Mangal, which was accepted by the selectors. Let us tell you that playing for County Select XI, Avesh Khan bowled only 9.5 overs and got injured while trying to stop the ball. After this there were reports of him going out of England tour itself, which is also true. Washington Sundar had a similar situation.

According to Cricbuzz, Washington Sundar also suffered a finger injury, which disrupted his batting and the team management would be left with an all-rounder. Hence the name of Jayant Yadav was suggested in place of Washington Sundar and Yadav would be included. Shubman Gil has also been ruled out of the England tour due to injury. Prithvi Shaw will be included in his place as a backup opener, about which there was an uproar earlier.

The management had asked for two options but then the selectors turned them down. Since now three players are out of injury, they will be forced to send Suryakumar Yadav and Jayant Yadav along with Prithvi Shaw. Let us inform that the Test series between India and England is starting from August 4.
