Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja were the latest additions on the injury list front during the third Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday.
India’s injury worries mounted after Pant took a blow on his left elbow from a Pat Cummins short ball, while later in the innings Jadeja got hit on the left thumb by a bouncer from Mitchell Starc.
While Pant was taken for scans before India’s first innings ended, Jadeja was seen in the dressing room with a bandage around his finger. But the BCCI confirmed later that he was off to get scanned as well.
According to a report by PTI, Jadeja was unlikely to bowl in Australia’s second innings. The 32-year-old’s left thumb was swollen and the physio applied taping on it. He threw a few balls but then it was decided that it won’t be possible for him to continue.
Wriddhiman Saha, on as substitute, was keeping wickets for India when Australia’s second innings began.
