Kapil Dev and Shubman Gill
- india vs england test series
- Series will start next month
- Shubman injured before series
Ahead of the start of the five-match Test series against England, opener Shubman Gill is suffering from a shin (front part of the leg below the knee) injury. He can be away from cricket for at least two months. Also, he can be out of the series if he is not fit. In such a situation, there is a discussion about the return of young opener Prithvi Shaw to the Indian Test team. Recently, media reports claimed that Team India has demanded to bring Prithvi in the team instead of Gill. However, there have been different reactions to the news of Shaw’s inclusion in the team. Former World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has erupted over the discussion of sending a player to England. He has said a lot about the selectors. Let us inform that Shaw is currently on a tour of Sri Lanka for the limited overs series.
‘The players present in the team will be insulted’
On the discussion of sending Prithvi Shaw to England, Kapil Dev said in a program of ABP News that I do not think there is any need for it. There should also be some respect for the selectors. They have picked a team and I am sure it would not have happened without their (Shastri and Kohli) consultations. I mean you have two big opening batsmen in KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Do you really need the third option? I don’t think it is correct. He said, ‘I do not agree with this theory. The team he has selected already has openers. So I think they should play. Otherwise it will be an insult to the players who are already in the team.
‘No need for any unnecessary controversy’
Kapil further said that I want the captain and the management to have their say, but not at the cost of ignoring the selectors. Say ‘we need these players’. In that case we don’t even need selectors. I feel a bit strange to know that something like this has happened, because if it does, it undermines the selectors and their role. Only Virat and Ravi can say anything on this. I think this is a wrong set-up to enter. The players you have taken in the team, you cannot let them down. They are big players and I don’t want anything like that to happen. There is no need for any unnecessary controversy.
