- Many believe that Avesh Khan could have got a chance for his Test debut.
New Delhi: Young fast bowler Avesh Khan has been ruled out of the match due to a left thumb injury while playing for County XI on the first day of India’s first-class warm-up game in Durham and is also almost certain to be ruled out of the England tour. Right-arm pacer Avesh was representing the hosts after some County XI players went on mandatory isolation after coming in contact with COVID-19 positive people.
A senior official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said that Charge, who was on the tour as a standby player, could be out for a long time due to injury and the Indian team management ahead of the Test series starting at Trentbridge, Nottingham on August 4. shall have at least one net bowler less.
A BCCI source said, “Leave this match alone, Avesh is unlikely to participate further in this series as well. He has a fracture in his thumb. He will not be able to bowl for at least a month and his rehabilitation is expected to begin after that. The situation will be clear in the next three days.
The BCCI did not elaborate on Avesh’s injury on Wednesday, but said “fast bowler Avesh Khan will be under the supervision of the medical team.” He will not be able to take part in the second and third day’s play of the practice match. Avesh was injured on the fifth ball of his 10th over in the post-lunch session on the first day on Tuesday. He was blocking Hanuma Vihari’s shot.
Avesh was expected to get a chance to debut
He appeared to be in severe pain after being hit by the ball and was immediately given medical attention, and a commentator on Durham’s YouTube channel was heard saying the injury could be serious. The 24-year-old Avesh has so far taken 100 wickets in 26 first-class matches and many believed he could have made his debut during the five-match Test series against England.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli took part in the net practice session on Wednesday. He did not play in the practice match due to mild back pain. The Indian captain is likely to play in the team-mates match next week. Young opener Shubmin Gill, who was ruled out of the England tour due to injury, has returned home. He had moved out of the team’s bio-secure environment after the World Test Championship against New Zealand last month but has since been holidaying in the UK.
Shubman will join the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru after spending some time with his family members in Mohali. He may make a comeback in the second leg of the Indian Premier League.
