Ind vs Aus: Injury Updates ahead 3rd test

Amid preparations for the third test in Indore, Australia have been really pushed hard on the backfoot by those major blows. Before the series started, India too had a few concerns like Bumrah and Rishabh Pant but India never felt an absence of those guys and this shows the bench strength and talent in the Indian camp.

Australia, on the other hand, appears helpless at this stage as they have already lost the Border Gavaskar trophy by losing the first two games, and now they have suffered a further setback with the departure of Pat Cummins from the third test. Now, it’s important to consider whether Australia can still survive or win the final two tests or accept a series loss of 4-0.
