Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan Released Early from India’s T20 World Cup Squad

In a surprising turn of events, the Indian cricket team management has decided to release young opener Shubman Gill and fast bowler Avesh Khan from the T20 World Cup squad. The pair, who travelled with the team to the United States, will head back home after India’s final group stage encounter against Canada on June 15th in Florida.

This late call to release Gill and Avesh wasn’t part of the initial plan. “It’s a call by the Indian team management,” revealed a well-placed source. “As per the original plan, both Gill and Avesh were supposed to travel for the entire tournament, but the management has now decided to release them.”

The news comes after both players remained on the fringes of the squad during the group stage in New York. While reserves Khaleel Ahmed and Rinku Singh were seen cheering on their teammates from the stands during the high-voltage clash against Pakistan, Gill was notably absent, choosing to stay back at the hotel.

It’s unclear what prompted the team management’s decision. Some speculate it could be a way to manage workload or perhaps a chance to bring in a replacement player who might be better suited for the conditions in the Super 8 stage, which will be played in the West Indies.

Rohit Sharma and Co. Aim for Unblemished Group Stage

Despite the surprise departure of Gill and Avesh, India will be looking to maintain their winning momentum in the tournament. They convincingly secured victories in all three of their group stage matches played in New York, showcasing excellent form in challenging conditions.

With their next encounter against Canada scheduled for June 15th, the Men in Blue have an opportunity to finish the group stage undefeated. This winning streak could provide a major confidence boost heading into the crucial Super 8 stage, where they’ll face tougher competition.

Questions Remain as India Enters Super 8 Stage

The early release of Gill and Avesh raises questions about the team’s strategy for the upcoming matches. While reserves Rinku Singh and Khaleel Ahmed remain with the squad, it’s unclear if the team management plans to call up any replacements.

Fans will be eagerly waiting to see how India navigates the challenges ahead, particularly given the change in playing conditions as they move to the West Indies. Can they maintain their winning form without Gill and Avesh? Only time will tell.
