Three of Team India’s key players have been ruled out of the World Test Championship final. Captain Rohit Sharma faces a major challenge in this circumstance.
The Indian cricket team just won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by defeating Australia 2-1. Together with this series, Team India has secured a spot in the World Test Championship final. The Indian squad will be seen competing in this high-profile encounter for the second time in a row. But, a major issue has developed in front of the squad before to this encounter. Indeed, three of Team India’s finest players would be unable to compete in this important encounter.
1. Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iyer, Team India’s standout batter, has received a major upgrade. During the fourth Test against Australia, Iyer had a back injury. He couldn’t even bat in India’s first innings after that. Iyer has been working hard to get back into shape since then. But, this athlete will be unable to participate for the next 4-5 months. Iyer, on the other hand, has been ruled out of the whole IPL season as well as the World Test Championship final this year.
2. Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant, Team India’s outstanding wicket-keeper batsman, was killed in a vehicle accident before the start of the year. He was critically hurt as a result of the collision. This player will be out of commission for several months. Pant can potentially miss the ODI World Cup later this year, in addition to the World Test Championship final.
3. Jasprit Bumrah
For a long time, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been bothered by a back problem. Bumrah will be unable to compete in the World Test Championship this year. Before, he was unable to compete in the Asia Cup 2022, the T20 World Cup 2022, or the Border-Gavaskar series. Bumrah may have been a devastating option in English circumstances, but now the squad must find a substitute for the player.
