Mohammad Shami’s Injury Updates: The visitors were brutally exposed by the Australian pacer on Saturday to end the first test on the third day itself. Virat and Co. were restricted to just 39/9 in the second innings and Cummins and Hazlewood wrapped Indian batting inside one over of the play.
However, to wrap the innings, Pat Cummins’s bouncer hit Mohammad Shami’s wrist trying to dodge a fierce bouncer. Shami looked in pain and soon called the physio on the ground. Mohammad Shami tried to be on the field but could not handle the pain from the wrist.
Shami went retired hurt giving Australia 90 runs target to win the game.
He looked in pain, Virat Kohli:
During the post-match presentation, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was asked for updates on Shami’s injury to which he replied, he looked in a lot of pain and is taken to the hospital for further scans.
“No news on Mohammad Shami, he is going for a scan now. Was in a lot of pain, could not even lift his arm. We’ll probably know in the evening what happens,” Virat Kohli on Shami’s update during the post-match presentation.
If Shami doesn’t get fit for the second game against India at Melbourne Cricket Ground, it will be a big blow for the Indian bowling lineup. Ishant Sharma was previously ruled out of the series due to injury concerns.
However, the exact reports and updates on the pacer’s injury still remain to be seen.
Australia wins the easy win in the first game took up the lead 1-0. Both the teams will lock horns for the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne Cricket Ground on 26th December.
