Krunal, Chahar to replace Washington, Bumrah for T20 series against England

Axar Patel

It is a huge blow for Team India as Bumrah is the only bowler along with Yuzvendra Chahal to feature in the top 10 T20 bowlers in the ICC T20I rankings. The Indian team management has chose to rest Bumrah for the three-match T20 series against England which begins in Manchester on Tuesday. While Bumrah's loss is set to be seamer Deepak Chahar's gain, Sundar's injury has opened the doors for all-rounder Krunal Pandya.

On the other hand, Sundar sustained an ankle injury while playing football during India's first practice session in Malahide.

Bumrah fractured his thumb during India s first of two T20 matches against Ireland last week, and was ruled out of the upcoming England series. Even if that doesn't happen, it will be a remarkable turn of events for Chahar.

Krunal, however, hasn't been impressive, but he has been rewarded for his good show in the IPL and domestic circuit.

Home secretary Sajid Javid and leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom are also reported to have been in the planning session. A Whitehall Source told The Times: " This is the first time different ministers have come together in one room ".

This is Chahar's maiden call-up to the Indian cricket team and he will be hoping to make the most of it. After picking up three wicket hauls in two warm-up matches, Chahar picked up five wickets against West Indies "A" in the tri-series followed by a two-wicket burst against the same opposition. Deepak Chahar is placed no.3 in the highest wicket takers tally in the tournament with Axar Patel at no.5.

While Krunal and Deepak were included just for the T20 series, left-arm spinner Axar Patel has been named as Sundar's replacement for the three-match ODI series that starts in Nottingham on June 12. But ahead of a sterner test against England, it's a major blow for India.

But the good news is that Bumrah will be available for the ODI series against England that begins on July 12.
