Former cricketer VVS Laxman has questioned India’s injury blows ahead of the 2nd Test against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium. Laxman pointed out that captain Virat Kohli didn’t speak a word on the injuries in the pre-match press conference and wondered if anything happened in the morning.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday morning announced that senior cricketers Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ishant Sharma all have suffered injuries during the 1st Test and will miss the final match of the series.
The turn of events left many in shock and VVS Laxman questioned the injuries during his appearance on Star Sports. He said:
“Did something happen this morning? But Virat Kohli said nothing about in the press conference yesterday. It is obviously a big blow. Jadeja was injured in that England series and Axar Patel came in and he was named Player of the Series.”
The BCCI release revealed that Ajinkya Rahane has suffered a hamstring injury while veteran pacer Ishant Sharma has dislocated his finger. Ravindra Jadeja, on the other hand, has suffered a right forearm injury.
