New Delhi: The Test series against England is scheduled to start on August 4, but before that, three players of the Indian cricket team have been left out of the tour. After the injuries of Shubhaman Gill and Avesh Khan, Washington Sundar is also injured and will not be able to play in the Test series against England. Let me tell you that both Washington Sundar and Awesh Khan were playing a practice match in Durham. Both the players were included in the playing XI of County Select XI, but now both Sundar and Avesh Khan have been ruled out of the England tour due to finger injuries.
According to media reports, Washington Sundar has a finger injury, although it is not yet known if he was injured. Washington was able to score just 1 run while playing for County Select XI. The fourth-ranked batsman was the victim of a bouncer by Mohammad Siraj.
Big blow to Washington’s beautiful exit
Let me tell you that Washington Sundar’s exit from the England tour is a big blow. Washington is pretty much a good bowler as well as a good tech batsman. He was instrumental in Team India’s victory, scoring 62 in the first innings of the Gabba Test on the tour of Australia. He then went on to score 181 runs at an average of 90.50 in England’s Test series. It is clear that Washington could prove to be a pretty important weapon in the Test series against England, keeping the order down, but now he is out of the tour due to injury.
Will the three players go to England?
Let me tell you that Shubhaman Gill left the England tour two weeks ago due to injury and has now returned to India. Let me tell you that the BCCI had refused to send any other player to England instead of Shubhaman Gill, but now it will be interesting to see what the board will do after Washington Sundar and Awesh Khan are injured. Well, there is no shortage of options in the Indian team. Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar are seen in Sri Lanka. It is possible that the BCCI will send 2-3 players from Sri Lanka to England.
