India takes on Afghanistan in a one-off Test in Bengaluru. But it seems the Indian team is plagued with injuries, after Wriddhiman Saha, injury may keep Ishant Sharma out as well. Well, at the moment nothing can be confirmed but in all probability he would be missing the Test.
Earlier, injured Wriddhiman Saha had to make way for Dinesh Karthik and now it seems another problem has cropped up.
So, how do we have this information about Ishant Sharma’s injury?
This is the tweet that makes us believe so.
Yes, Ishant Sharma was left out of the Sussex squad because of an injury.
Ishant will now have to undergo tests and finally pass the yo-yo test to finally make it to the starting XI. As of now, it seems highly unlikely that India would risk Ishant Sharma against Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan has been in raging form, they recently beat Bangladesh by 45 runs at Dehradun.
Meanwhile, Ishant has played 4 four first-class matches and picked up a total of 15 wickets at an average of 23 with the best bowling figures of 4/52. Apart with the First Class games, he’s also played the List A matches in the Royal London One-Day Cup, and in 6 matches and has 8 wickets to his name with an economy of 4.81.
