Big setback for team India; Mohammad Shami ruled out from rest of the Australia series

 On the same day in Adelaide, the Indian team suffered two major setbacks.  After India's embarrassing defeat in the first Test match against Australia, Team India's chief fast bowler Mohammad Shami has also been ruled out of the Test series due to injury.  A fracture has been found in Shami's right hand.  Shami suffered a right hand injury from Pat Cummins during the second innings of the Indian team, due to which he had to retire retired and the Indian innings ended on 36 runs.

 On the third day of the match in Adelaide on Saturday 19 December, when the Indian team had lost 9 wickets for just 31 runs, Mohammed Shami came to the crease.  During this time, a short ball from Pat Cummins was found in Shami's right hand, which caused Shami a lot of trouble.  During this, the team physio came into the field and examined Shami and then it was decided to retire him.  Due to this injury, Shami could not even come for bowling in the second innings.

 Out due to fracture in right hand

 According to the news agency PTI, Shami's hand was scanned after the match, in which the fracture was found.  Due to this, Shami is out of the next three matches of the Test series.  However, no official confirmation has been made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India so far.

 After the match, captain Virat Kohli said about Shami's injury that he was in a lot of trouble and it was difficult for him to raise his hand.  It was said that Shami's injury would be known after the scan.  Kohli said that he has been taken for a scan and something can be said clearly by evening.

 There were a lot of wickets in the last series

 Shami's injury is another major setback for the Indian team, which was already 1-0 behind after losing the first match of the Test series.  Shami did not have any success in the first innings, but he put a lot of pressure on the Australian batsmen.  He was also one of India's most successful bowlers in the last tour of Australia.  He took 16 wickets.

 Ishant Sharma already out of Test series

 Shami's injury is not the first setback for India in this tour.  Before the start of this tour, senior batsman Rohit Sharma and experienced fast bowler Ishant Sharma were also injured.  While Ishant Sharma dropped out of the entire Test series, Rohit will also not be a part of the team in the first 2 matches.  He can join the playing XI in the last 2 matches.
