After the suspension of IPL 2021, the attention it had been given has shifted to the India tour of England 2021. The India tour to England ought to begin in July according to the Coronavirus rules. Additionally, the squad is supposed to get to England in the first week of June because of the 14-day quarantine rule. But because the IPL has been suspended, the Indian team can even travel before.
Before the England tour, the Indian team will face New Zealand in the final of the World Cup on June 18-23. After this, the series against England will trail. The players for this tour are expected to be released. Many fans are trying to predict which players will be retained and those to be released. The team to be picked by the Board for Cricket in India consisted of 30 participants.
It’s possible that most players picked for the Indian team for England tour will be the same. Still, the likes of Abhimanyu Easwaran, Priyank Panchal, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, and Devdutt Padikkal are in the fray. The selecting Board may consider returning Prithvi Shaw after the impressive record during the unfinished IPL 2021. Hardik Pandya may return to the middle order for the India vs. England Test match. Hardik had been injured during the tour of Australia. Because of this, he was released at the finals of this match and the home series against England. Although he looks as if he is fit, Hardik cannot bowl yet, even in the shortest format.
Ravindra Jadeja can return to the squad for the all-rounders, although he had also been injured during the Australia tour. Washington Sundar is likely to return to his spot, mainly because of the impressive results in Down Under. In the spin-bowling sector, R Ashwin is expected to be joined by Axar Patel and Patel Chahar. Chahar has been the net bowler for some time, and Axar was India’s best spinner during the home series of England. However, he is likely to be released from the team. Jasprit Bumrah is expected to return to the team after taking a break from playing because of his marriage. For Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan, it’s possible that they can be handed maiden call-ups. Also, the Board can return Bhuvneshwar Kumar to the squad. Concerning the net bowlers, the Indian team can consider taking Chetan Sakariya, who was impressing with his left-arm seam bowling with Rajasthan Royals and Ankit Rajpoot.
