IND vs ENG Test 2021: Mark Wood Uncertain for Third Test As He Suffers Shoulder Injury
Mark Wood did not get a chance in the XI due to Stuart Broad in the first Test. Broad was ruled out of the series due to injury before the second Test. Mark Wood performed as a substitute for Broad in the Lord’s Test. However, Mark Wood Suffers Shoulder Injury on the fourth day of the Lord’s Test and is uncertain for the third test between India and England.
The England cricket team is not having a hard time. One cricketer after another is leaving the team due to injury. Joffre Archer, Chris Woakes, and Ben Stokes were dropped from the team before the start of the series. Fast bowler Stuart Broad has been dropped from the team after the first Test. This time Mark Wood is in danger of being dropped from the team.
Despite being injured on the fourth day, Wood also bowled at the beginning of the fifth day. This has increased the possibility of dropping out. It has been a matter of time before he was dropped from the team due to a shoulder injury.
Wood got off to a good start by playing as Broad’s replacement. He took 2 wickets in the first innings but took 3 wickets in the second innings. But he injured his right shoulder while fielding on the fourth day of the Lord’s Test. He still bowled at the beginning of the fifth day. This has increased the injury.
England coach Chris Silverwood said the decision would be made after talking to Wood and doctors. “We will talk to him (Mark Wood) and the medical team,” he said. If he is not right, then he is excluded. If he doesn’t want to play, he won’t be fielded. ‘
The English coach said that all-rounder Ben Stokes will not be called up to play in this situation. “He will be back in the team when he is ready,” he said. His mental health is very important. India is 1-0 up in the series after winning the second Test of the five-match series. The third Test of the series will be played at Headingley from August 25.
