Ind vs Aus: Bumrah out of Brisbane Test, Ashwin-Agarwal also injured


Even 
before the start of India's tour of 
Australia , Team India's players continue to suffer injuries. On Tuesday, Team India suffered another setback before the fourth Test as Bumrah was also ruled out of the fourth Test. According to a report, Bumrah had a team management alert after feeling a strain in the lower abdomen. The team with the fourth Test against India Bumrah part of the reason can not take the risk that if Bumrah is played can be aggravated his injury.

Mayank and Ashwin are doubtful to play in the fourth Test.

In addition to Bumrah, Mayank Agarwal, who was discussed as a replacement for Hanuma Vihari in the team at Brisbane, was also injured while practicing on the net. He may have a hairline fracture. The situation could get worse now than in the third Test, as Ashwin was found to have a back problem after batting for 3.30 hours on the final day of the Sydney Test. It is doubtful that he will play in the next Test and now the Indian team has no choice.

Bumrah's injury is not serious, but the risk cannot be taken

Bumrah, the main bowler in the Indian fast bowling unit, suffered a lower abdominal strain during the third Test. Bumrah's scan report highlighted the strain and the Indian team management did not want to take any more risks in view of his injury in view of the upcoming four-Test series against England. A BCCI source said: "Bumrah had a stomach ache while fielding in Sydney. He has been ruled out of the Brisbane Test but will hopefully be available for the series against England. Although the injury is not serious, it is good news for India. But management is on alert and working to prevent injury.

Playing Bumrah without full fitness risks dropping him out of the England series

"If we risk playing Bumrah with 50 per cent fitness, he will be out in the middle of the match," the source said. With this he could also lose most of the matches in the series against England. Is the final series against England. This will determine the qualification for the final of the World Test Championship and the Indian team is also a contender and Bumrah will be needed in the final crucial series.

Siraj will be the main bowler of the team

It is now rumored that Mohammad Siraj, who will play two Tests, will lead the Indian bowling unit and will accompany Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur and T Natarajan in the Brisbane Test starting January 15. If Bumrah is not at risk of playing without full fitness, then Natarajan will definitely make his Test debut.

The biggest problem is the selection of the team for the final test

The problem for the Indian team now is that after the departure of the injured Lokesh Rahul and the Grade 2 injury of Hanuma Vihari, there are no more options in the middle order. The 2 batsmen who are present are Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal who are facing bad form. It remains to be seen whether India will decide to field four bowlers in view of the absence of players and the lower order. If Pant is fit, he will remain in the team as a wicketkeeper and Prithvi could be ranked third and then Pujara, Rahane and Agarwal. If India comes down with 5 bowlers, the experience of fast bowler unit will be a total of 4 Tests (Siraj-2, Saini-1, Thakur-1, Natarajan-0).
