'It's insulting for players already in team': Kapil Dev not in favour of additions in India squad for England Tests

Former all-rounder Kapil Dev is against the addition of any further openers in India's Test squad for the five-match series against England, with the World Cup winning captain claiming there is no need to look beyond the pool of 20 players who are currently in the UK. Kapil's comments come after reports on Saturday surfaced that the management is inclined towards calling up Prithvi Shaw from Sri Lanka for the England tour after Shubman Gill picked up an injury and is expected to miss the entire series.

Kapil, however, feels that with the likes of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul already in the side, and Abhimanyu Easwaran as a reserve player, picking yet another opening batsman and adding him to the squad does not reflect nice on the management's part and promises to act as an 'insult' to the players who are already in the squad.

"I don't think there is any need for it. There should be some respect for the selectors too. They have picked a team and I'm sure it wouldn't have happened without their (Shastri and Kohli) consultation. I mean, you have two such big opening batsmen in KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Do you really need a third option? I don't think it's right," Kapil said on the 'Wah Cricket' show on ABP News.
