India opener Shubman Gill has been ruled out of the five-match Test series against England beginning in August, sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told NDTV on Wednesday. Gill will reportedly stay on with the Indian Test squad in England. Abhimanyu Easwaran, who was named as a standby player by the BCCI when the squad was announced, has been earmarked as his replacement in the squad, sources said. India also have Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul in the squad as cover for the opener’s position, and one of them is likely to walk out with Rohit Sharma when the series starts.

Gill, 21, has played eight Tests and has scored 414 runs an average of 31.84. The youngster has scored three half-centuries, with a highest score of 91.

BCCI had announced a 20-member squad for the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand in Southampton and the England Test series.
