Sourav Ganguly sought to stay out of the debate over the national selectors’ decision not to send a substitute for injured opener Shubman Gill to England on Thursday.
Shubman Gill’s injury in England has prompted speculation about who will replace him for the Test series. Gill has allegedly been ruled out of the series against England due to a shin ailment. Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikkal have been mentioned as possible replacements for him for the England tour, but no official decision has been made.
Both Shaw and Padikkal are presently in Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series, and it has been said that India already has numerous openers in England, including Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and Abhimanyu Easwaran, and that no more replacements are required.
Sourav Ganguly, president of the BCCI, sought to avoid the controversy over the national selectors’ decision not to send a substitute for injured opener Shubman Gill to England on Thursday, stating that it was an issue for the selection committee to consider.
“That’s selectors’ call,” Ganguly remarked when questioned about the thorny topic while speaking to media on his 49th birthday on Thursday.
“Nothing will happen that we will not be able to handle. It will begin in September, and we will work out the details. There will be remorse, but no one has ever seen something like it in their lives. These are unique conditions “He informed reporters about it.
“Last year’s World Cup was canceled, and if it is canceled again this year due to Covid, it will be a huge loss for the sport. That is why we have moved it to a more secure location “he stated
Ganguly, who had a heart attack earlier this year and had angioplasty to treat it, said he is in excellent condition.
“I’m in excellent physical condition. That’s the way it is, another year has passed. You just try to be as quiet as possible in these Covid moments. It’s more for the sake of the people around you than for yourself. People at home have begun to plan their celebrations. It’s a celebration behind closed doors, “he stated
