India had sent a 24-member team to England. Now it has been reduced to 21 people. The selectors had previously made it clear that they would not send replacements for Gill. The selectors will decide on Aavesh and Sundar later. Kovid’s impact on Rishabh’s ball was also a setback for the team. The sick player will soon join the team.
