India Tour of England 2022: Suryakumar, Jadeja to walk-in, Deepak Chahar ruled Out

India Tour of England 2022: Indian Selectors are searching for options to form a full-strength squad for the England tour as the spate of injuries continues to haunt the Indian team. Among the uncertainty over players availability, the only good news is that Ravindra Jadeja & Suryakumar Yadav is likely to be fit on time for the England tour. On the other hand, Deepak Chahar continues to be out of action as he is still recovering from his back injury & is likely to miss another two months of action.

As per a selection committee member, all the three will be at the NCA in the coming days for their rehabilitation & depending on their fitness they will be considered for the England tour.

“They are not available for the South Africa series. But we are hopeful that Surya and Jaddu (Jadeja) will be fit for England tour. Even if they are not 100% by the 15th, they will be sent with the team and will complete their rehab in England. As for Deepak, it will take another good month or so,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport.

Deepak Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav & Ravindra Jadeja all are out of action in the IPL 2022 due to their respective injuries. Deepak Chahar suffered a back injury while in rehabilitation at the NCA for his quadriceps injury which he sustained back during India T20Is against West Indies. Ravindra Jadeja on the other hand is resting & recovering from the rib injury that forced him out of the IPL 2022 midway.

On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav sustained a muscle strain on his forearm during the Mumbai Indians IPL fixture against Gujarat Titans which ruled him out of the remainder of the IPL 2022 & South Africa Series as well.

Washinton Sundar & T Natarajan will be available for both the South Africa T20I series & India tour of England 2022 after displaying good performances in the IPL 2022. However, the duo will appear for a fitness Test after the IPL 2022 campaign. Washington Sundar will be rested for the South Africa series while Natarajan is set to play in South Africa series.

“Sundar and Natarajan have returned from injuries and are playing in the IPL. So, they are fit to play. But both will have to appear for a fitness test,” the selection committee member told InsideSport.

Meanwhile, there is still doubt over Prithvi Shaw’s availability in the upcoming series. Delhi capitals opener failed to clear BCCI mandatory yo-yo test before the IPL 2022. He was in a blistering form in the initial matches of the Delhi Capitals but was then ruled out of action after getting hospitalized due to Typhoid. He is still not completely fit and is unlikely to take part in Delhi Capitals remaining fixtures.

For India’s upcoming series against South Africa & England, he is considered a backup option, but only if he clears the mandatory fitness test.

“Look we don’t know what sort of fitness test is being conducted at his franchise. The team has certain guidelines when it comes to fitness and if he clears that, he will be selected. But if he fails that, he will have to wait until he does so,” the selection committee member added.

Rahul Tewatia too will be called for the fitness test & will be considered for the South Africa T20I series if he clears the fitness test.
