Shubman Gill reportedly set to be ruled out of 1st Test vs England
With nearly five weeks left for India's five-match Test series against England on their home turf, the Indian team is likely to have already suffered a setback going into the match.
India's one of many rising stars, Shubman Gill, is reportedly set to miss India's five-match Test series opener against England due to injury. However, if the case is much worse, he might miss more than one.
Shubman Gill had a very decent outing during the World Test Championship Final against New Zealand, given the youngster was only playing for the first time in the English conditions.
The exact injury is, however, not known to anyone apart from the team management. According to a report by Cricbuzz, the player has been carrying the injury for a long time.
Shubman Gill Replacement
However, Shubman Gill's injury might not bother the Indian team management and captain Virat Kohli. With Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul already with the team in England, one of two is expected to open the inning against England in the first test. However, the Indian team would want Gill to be fit as soon as possible.
