IND vs ENG: Good news for Team India, Prithvi Shaw & Suryakumar Yadav reach England, begin quarantine in London

Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah backed the request of the team management to have Shaw and Suryakumar join the Indian contingent in England for the five-match Test series. This came after there were doubts on whether there will be a change of plan with the duo being isolated as close contacts of Krunal Pandya in Colombo ahead of the second T20I in the Island Nation.

The BCCI had on July 26 informed that the All-India Senior Selection Committee had named Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar as replacements owing to their terrific form in limited-overs cricket over past few months.

Besides Sundar and Gill, pacer Avesh Khan has been also ruled out due to an injury.
