Injury trouble doesn’t seem to end for the Indian cricket team. After star all-rounder Hardik Pandya suffered an ankle injury, which forced him to rule out the upcoming clash against New Zealand in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala, on October 22, another Indian player suffered an injury.
Yes, you read that right. India’s dynamic batter Suryakumar Yadav has suffered an injury scare ahead of the India vs New Zealand match.
It has to be noted that Suryakumar Yadav was expected to replace Hardik Pandya. He was in line to play his first World Cup game but he got hit on his wrist during the net session. The impact of the blow was such that SKY didn’t return to bat.
Suryakumar Yadav Hit On Wrist Ahead Of IND vs NZ Clash
According to a report by Sportstar, Suryakumar Yadav clutched his right wrist while leaving the net session and was offered the ice pack. The latest report has come as a big worry for the Indian cricket team as SKY is in contention to play the fixture. He was expected to play a crucial role in Pandya’s absence.
The report also adds that opener Ishan Kishan, who was another contender to be a part of the final XI, was also forced to end his session early. The keeper-batter was stung by a honeybee. The scare to both players is a big worry to the Indian cricket team and the team will hope that both the players are available for selection.
The Indian cricket team will be in huge trouble if SKY and Ishan are not available as the team is already without the services of Hardik Pandya.
Predicted squad for Team India:
Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj
