The source said on the condition of anonymity, “Shubman has a calf strain, which will keep him away from cricket for at least two months. Means Gill can stay out of the Test series against England. “After completing his rehabilitation, he may be fit for the last two Test matches in September,” he added. However, it is not yet known when he got this injury. It is being said that Gill was battling this injury for some time and recently it has become serious.
The India-England Test series is to end after two and a half months. In such a situation, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul are the other two openers in the team. Gill is likely to be replaced by Abhimanyu Isheran in the main team, who is currently ‘stand by’. Let us tell you that Team India is currently enjoying the holidays in Great Britain. After the defeat in the WTC final, the Indian team got a three-week break. Team India will assemble in London on 14 July and leave for Durham, after which it will again be in the Bio-Bubble.
