Earlier, Stuart Broad was ruled out of the entire series due to injury. In addition to Broad, Zafar Archer and Chris Oakes have already been ruled out of the series due to injuries. In such a situation, Mark Wood’s dismissal is a big blow for England.
The result of the Nottingham Test came courtesy of the rain. However, England has lost to India in the Lord’s Test. Naturally, the English are desperate to win the third Test of the series. However, the injured England camp is in trouble. Wood has been added to the England squad for injury. Which has become a cause for concern for the English team management.
