After loss in the finals of inaugural edition of ICC World Test Championship against New-Zealand, now Virat Kohli and co members are marching towards the next cycle of Test Championship with playing against England for 5 match red ball series. It will be the commencement of the next red ball edition tournament.
This series will provide more confidence to visitors to outshone their talent and bring good comeback to the red ball format, but before the start of the series already visitors are totally in trouble as they got two players earlier in isolation due to covid positive test.
Indian Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has been tested positive and Wriddhiman Saha has been isolated due to being in contact with the staff member. So the question for Wicketkeeping has been in a doubtful situation. It is said that KL Rahul might play the role for the team behind the stumps.
Now already being in much devastated situations, two more star players have been injured during the practice session and that is none other Indian skipper Virat Kohli and vice captain Ajinkya Rahane.
It is reported from the updates given by BCCI that Virat Kohli has felt kind of stiffness in his back on late Monday evening while Ajinkya Rahane has seen with mild swelling around his left upper hamstring.
This will be a huge blow for Indian cricket team if these two mandatory players get evicted from the tour which can create big trouble for the visitors to play against Mighty England in overseas conditions.
Already it has been considered that England are the favourites for the initial test match and with being much trouble Indian squad might be hoping for some good news ahead this epic series.
