Shardul Thakur hamstring injury, likely to miss Lord’s Test


India’s fast bowler Shardul Thakur suffered a Hamstring Injury. He was out of the second Test against England at Lord’s, ESPNCricinfo reports.

Thakur’s injury adds to India’s growing list of injuries which has already seen Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, and Avesh Khan ruled out.

Thakur in the first Test in Nottingham-

Thakur picked up four wickets in the first Test in Nottingham – 2/41 and 2/37. However, in the second innings, he bowled only 13 overs, the fewest among all four pacers. However, Thakur did spend time at the Lord’s gym on Monday under the supervision of physiotherapist Nitin Patel and trainer Nick Webb, the website further reported.

The conditions will not be as bad as the 1st Test in Nottingham. With no prediction for rain in the last two days. The pitches are on the drier side and could be helpful for spinners. That could be another reason why England is bringing in Moeen Ali. Furthermore, as per the images of the pitch, it doesn’t have 10mm of grass cover as was the case at Trent Bridge. With dry conditions and no rain prediction until Day 5, Ravichandran Ashwin could be a viable option considering his form and batting ability.

The pitch is on the drier side, there could possibly be no harm in playing both Ashwin and Jadeja, who can trouble this brittle England batting line-up with their different variations.

India could also make a like-for-like replacement, picking either Ishant Sharma or Umesh Yadav as the fourth seamer and stick to their original combination. The weather for the Lord’s Test is expected to be a lot better with almost no chances of rain.

The India pacer Ishant sustained an injury during the WTC final. Requiring multiple stitches on his right/bowling arm. But Ishant seems to have recovered well as he took an active part in India’s training session on Monday. Bowling at length, and even invested time on batting receiving throwdowns.
