After the first match being washed out due to rain both team will march towards the second test match which will be played at Lord’s. But before the commencement of the second test, Indian camp has hit with an awful news, that Indian pacer Shardul Thakur is probably going to miss the second Test of the five-match series against England, planned at the Lord’s Cricket Ground from August 12.
Thakur is perceived to have done some damage to his hamstring in the lead-up to the subsequent Test while he was rehearsing with the crew. A ultimate conclusion, in any case, is relied upon to be gained taking a gander at his headway in the leftover time before the subsequent installation.
Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who was not chosen in XI for the Trent Bridge Test as India went with a 4:1 speed turn mix with Ravindra Jadeja in, is relied upon to be the likeliest trade for Thakur in a bid to guarantee the profundity in batting. Ashwin, a veteran of 79 Tests, has 2685 runs at 27.68, with five centuries and 11 half-hundreds of years to his name.
He was in excellent condition as of late for Surrey in the development to the five-match Pataudi Trophy, as he got back with 6/27 in the second innings against Somerset at the Oval, one of the significant reasons why his Trent Bridge avoidance caused a stir.
England Speedster Stuart Broad might also miss out the second test
The England camp has been injury-hit, as well, as pacer Stuart Broad is almost precluded subsequent to harming his right calf during preparing in London with the group. The right arm pacer will go through outputs and his further support is exposed to those outcomes.
In the interim, England has reviewed off-turn all-rounder Moeen Ali into their crew. Ali last addressed England against India during the second Test at Chennai, after which traveled to England as a piece of ECB’s rest and pivot strategy.
Britain doesn’t have the administrations of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, while pacer Chris Woakes was not named in the crew for the initial two Tests after he harmed his heel during the home series against Sri Lanka. In Broad’s nonattendance, England have choices in all-rounder Craig Overton and Mark Wood, close by James Anderson, Ollie Robinson and Sam Curran, every one of the three of whom were a piece of the drawn first Test.
Both ECB and BCCI are yet to authoritatively report any reports in regards to the players’ accessibility for the subsequent Test.
