A source associated with the Indian team management informed that Shubman is currently very disappointed with this injury. This looks like a serious injury. The BCCI wants to contact a good doctor in England itself and get Gill treated there. The team management is hopeful that he will be fit by the start of this series. But at the moment it doesn’t seem possible. Maybe they might even need surgery. Also Read – Mayank Agarwal should not get Shubman Gill against England: Sunil Gavaskar
Although the Indian team already has reserve batsmen for the opening in the form of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul. Apart from this, Abhimanyu Easwaran has also gone to England as a reserve player with the team. In such a situation, the Indian team has some good options to fill Gill’s place.
