Mayank Agarwal Injury Update: The players of the Indian cricket team who have gone to Australia tour are constantly getting injured. The team suffered another setback on Tuesday when Pacer Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the fourth Test due to a stomach strain. Not only this, Mayank Agarwal, who is considered as a replacement for Hanuma Vihari in the playing XI in Brisbane, also suffered a hand injury while batting at the net and could suffer a hairline fracture.
The situation became worse when Ravichandran Ashwin’s back tightness problem increased after batting three and a half hours on the final day of the Sydney Test, leaving India with no more options. Bumrah, a key member of the Indian bowling attack, got this stretch during the drawn third Test in Sydney. According to the information, reports of Bumrah’s scan revealed a stretch and the Indian team management did not want to risk their injury in view of the upcoming four-Test series against England.
Bumrah will have to stay out of Brisbane Test
A BCCI source told PTI, “Jasprit Bumrah had a stomach strain while fielding in Sydney. He will be out of the Brisbane Test but he is expected to be available against England.
It is now expected that two Test playing Mohammed Siraj (Mohmmed Siraj) will lead the Indian attack and in the Brisbane Test starting on 15 January, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur and T Natarajan (T) Natarajan) will accompany them.
These two options left in middle order
The problem in the Indian team is that there is no option left in the middle order after the injured Lokesh Rahul’s departure and Hanuma Vihari’s Grade 2 injury. The two available batsmen are poor form openers Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal. Now it remains to be seen whether India decides to field with six batsmen and four bowlers, given the unavailability of key players and the long lower order.
In such a situation, batting order of team India can be
In such a situation, Rishabh Pant will be the wicketkeeper. In the scan of Mayank Agarwal, if a minor injury is found in place of fracture, then Prithvi Shaw can bat at number three and can be followed by Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Agarwal.
