IND vs AUS: One more blow to India, Hanuma Vihari out of final Test ..

Injuries to Indian players in the 
Test series against Australia continue. Hanuma Vihari, who played a key role in the Sydney Test draw, will miss the fourth Test in Brisbane due to a hamstring injury. Hanuma Vihari is believed to have been taken for a scan after the match. Whose report could come by Tuesday evening. But a BCCI source said Vihari would not be fit before the final Test, which starts on January 15. The Andhra batsman scored 23 off 161 balls. Meeting with Ashwin saved the Sydney Test.

Hanuma Vihari to stay away from cricket for 4 weeks

A source said that the seriousness of Vihari's injury will be known only after the scan report comes out. But even with a grade one injury, Vihari will have to stay out for 4 weeks and then undergo rehabilitation. Not only Brisbane but Vihari could also be ruled out of the Test series against England in India. Usually the Indian team prefers to play one more bowler at home. Therefore, it is unlikely that Vihari will be in the playing XI then. But an extra batsman will be needed when Team India travels to England.

This will be an option for Team India in the fourth Test

As a replacement for Vihari, Riddhiman Saha could be fielded as a wicketkeeper and Rishabh Pant as a batsman. Along with this, Mayank Agarwal can also get a place in the team. However, according to a report, Jadeja could be replaced by Shardul Thakur in Team India. Jadeja was also ruled out of the fourth Test against India in India due to injury.
