Finally a bad news struck into the Indian Cricket Team, as initially it was confirmed that Ishant Sharma will miss first two series while now it is said that He is going to miss the series. As Ishant Sharma had ben ruled out of the Australian Test Series. His injury hadn’t been recovered as the management thought and it won’t be a wise decision to make him go towards Australia. While Rohit Sharma is still under observation of the medical team and the management and will be monitored thoroughly and accessed on 11th December to achieve more clarity in his fitness. They both sustained injury during the 13th Edition of Indian Premier League which made this much of unexpected consequences in the pit. The red ball cricket will begin from 17th December and consists of four Test matches played in Australian soil.
BCCI and the management had announced that the speedster Ishant Sharma is recovering constantly from the injury which is caused in IPL2020, but it is not a safer option to make him available for the high voltage series. From last few years he has been constant and promising performer in the red ball cricket and considered to be the one of the core bowler in the Indian Test Team. Ishant Sharma has registered total of 297 wickets in his 97 Test career matches & he was the X-factor of clinching the series vs Australia last time.
With the absence of Ishant Sharma in the bowling attack for Indian Team, it will definitely put huge workload over Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami to swing against Mighty Australian side whereas Australia have the strongest of the point with the return of two prominent players like Steven Smith and David Warner to the squad. In the absence of both of them, Australian team also produced another player Marnus Labuschagne. With the unexpected rule out of Ishant Sharma and Virat Kohli’s allotted leave from the last 3 Test series will definitely put Australians ahead to the victory.
