Team India, which was struggling with injuries to some key players, got another big blow when KL Rahul And Ravindra Jadeja Was out of the second test due to injury. Many key players including Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami will not be present in the second Test against England starting in Visakhapatnam on Friday. Experts believe that a similar situation may persist in the third test also. After falling behind in the first match of the five-Test series, Team India would want to make a comeback at any cost. But the Indian team led by Rohit Sharma will have to take the field without some of its regular players.

Ravindra Jadeja may take a long time to recover

A report in Cricbuzz has estimated that Ravindra Jadeja’s hamstring injury may take some time to heal. Experts say that hamstring problems usually take four to eight weeks to heal. In such a situation, Jadeja may have to stay out of the field for a long time. Quoting sources, it was said that Jadeja may be fit for the fourth Test to be held in Ranchi from 23 to 27 February.

BCCI has also mentioned in its update about his absence only for the second test. But it is expected that Jadeja may also miss the third Test to be held in Rajkot. The situation regarding Mohammed Shami is also not promising. Cricbuzz claimed in several other reports that the fast bowler is suffering from an ankle problem and is currently in London. Although there is no immediate information about the surgery, but it is believed that he is getting his ankle treated through injection. It is almost certain that he will not be available for any match of the current five-Test series.

Virat Kohli on leave due to personal reasons

Now let us talk about Virat Kohli. Kohli took leave for two matches due to personal reasons just a few days before the start of the England vs India Test series. BCCI had requested fans and media to maintain their confidentiality. Because of this, it is not yet known why Kohli is on leave. Till now it is not clear whether Kohli will be able to make a comeback in the third test match or not.

A report says that KL Rahul’s condition is not very worrying and he can return in the third Test to be held from February 15. Rahul had complained of pain in his right quadriceps. He had thigh surgery in 2022. BCCI has kept him away from the second Test out of caution. Rahul has gone to NCA and is undergoing rehab. Rahul can join the team by the time of the third test. BCCI can announce the team for three more test matches in a day or two.
