India batsman Shubman Gill has returned back home after being ruled out of the five-match Test series against England. Gill posted an Instagram story of him arriving back in India and his family welcoming him with a cake. He suffered a shin injury and he was ruled out for eight weeks in what came as a huge blow for Team India going into the Test series against England. Sources told ANI that the injury happened after the World Test Championship final.
"He has a shin injury which he has sustained after the WTC final against New Zealand and will need around eight weeks to recover," a source explained.
This now means the Indian team management will have to look at going ahead with either Mayank Agarwal or KL Rahul as the second opener with Rohit Sharma.
