After Shubman Gill got sheen injury, Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan injured themselves during the practice match, where they represented County XI against India. Initially, Jayant Yadav was also suggested as a back-up option Sundar, but only two Mumbai batsmen were called in the Test squad against England.

Both the players were put into separate isolation, and a mandatory protocol was followed. Now, it is confirmed that Surya and Prithvi, will take the flight for UK from Colombo on July 31, that is today. They will spend the mandatory 10 day quarantine at London on arrival & they might just be available before the 2nd test match.
