<strong>Colombo:</strong> With multiple injuries to the Virat Kohli-led Indian side in the UK ahead of the five-match Test series against England, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to send injury replacements. As per a report in The Indian Express, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, and Jayant Yadav would travel to the UK to join Kohli and Co. <p></p> <p></p>The same report suggests that the team management had asked for two openers and a spinner as replacements for the three injured players - Washington Sundar, Shubman Gill, and Avesh Khan. <p></p> <p></p>The report also claims that Suryakumar Yadav is likely to be picked as a cover for Ajinkya Rahane - who is recovering from a hamstring injury. The team did not ask for a like-for-like backup for Avesh Khan because they already have ample pacers. <p></p> <p></p>Shaw and Suryakumar are in Sri Lanka for the white-ball series, while Jayant Yadav is in India. BCCI had earlier turned down the request of the team management to send Shaw as a replacement for Gill. With the list of injured players on the rise, seems like BCCI was left with minimal options. <p></p> <p></p>In all probability, Mayank Agarwal - who is in the UK with the team - would join Rohit Sharma at the top. Bengal's Abhimanyu Easwaran is also in there as a backup option. <p></p> <p></p>The first Test starts on August 4 at Trent Bridge.
