Indian team’s injury woes still continue as now some reports suggest that Jasprit Bumrah might miss the fourth test of this series as he has suffered an abdominal strain.
Jasprit Bumrah suffered this strain during the third test. He wasn’t bowling to his full run-up due to this injury. Bumrah will go for the scans on Tuesday and the call will be taken after the reports come in. Indian management will take the final call on his selection in the team. Indian team is already suffering due to unavailability and the injuries of the players. The long list of unavailable/injured players include Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami, Rohit Sharma too unavailable for the first two tests and the latest addition in the list Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari who have been ruled out of the series. Rishabh Pant too was doubtful to participate in the second innings of the third test but his reports were safe and was good to go. The final call on Pant’s selection will be taken before the fourth test. Some reports have also suggested that the Indian management is keen to play Bumrah even if it causes Bumrah to miss the England series.
The fourth test will be played at Brisbane from Friday.
