“Obviously, when many first-team players are injured, it is a big headache for the selectors and the team management. Deepak is recovering well but we will have to assess his fitness before the series.

However, the list of players who will possibly be rested also long. Virat Kohli is one of the candidates besides the likes of Mohammad Shami. With Gujarat Titans already qualifying for IPL 2022 Playoffs, he will bowl the highest number of overs amongst Indian pacers. The selectors will also speak to Kohli on a possible break and take a call.

“It’s a phase every player goes through and Virat is also going through the same. He will overcome it for sure. But as selectors, we will have to think about the team first. We will have a chat with him on whether he wants a break from cricket or continue to fight the slump,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport earlier.
