Shubham Gill And Avesh Khan Return to Home

Shubman Gill, who is currently with the Indian team as a travelling reserve, will return home after the conclusion of the US leg of the Indian team’s matches in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup.

One of the reserve pacers, possibly Avesh Khan, may return home after the match against Canada in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on June 15.

As of Thursday, both players are in Florida, having arrived in Fort Lauderdale from New York with the team on a chartered flight on Wednesday.

The charters were organised for both the India and USA teams after the match between the two sides at the Nassau County International Stadium in Long Island on Wednesday afternoon. It is learnt that the travel of both Gill and Avesh was only till the US leg, unless there were unforeseen injuries to the players.

They had accompanied the team as travelling reserves as it would not be immediately possible for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to send reinforcements from India to the US or the Caribbean in case of an unforeseen injury to a player.

The duo may be asked to stay back in case a regular player gets injured during the practice scheduled on June 14 or the next day’s game. But that is highly unlikely to happen as the current inclement weather in Florida could disrupt the World Cup schedule.

The squad also has a third opener Yashasvi Jaiswal and an additional pacer may not be required as the team is expected to rely more on spinners in the Caribbean leg. Gill, Rinku Singh, Khaleel Ahmed and Avesh were originally reserve players that the selection committee named when it announced the squad for the World Cup on April 30. As of now Rinku and Khaleel could stay with the team and travel to Bridgetown, Barbados, where India will play their first game of the Super 8s on June 20. .

If they reach the semi-finals, it will be in Georgetown, Guyana on June 27 and the final will be held in Bridgetown on June 29Shubman Gill, who is currently with the Indian team as a travelling reserve, will return home after the conclusion of the US leg of the Indian team’s matches in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup.
