Adelaide: After losing by 8 wickets in the first test against Australia, Team India now has another blow. The team’s star fast pitcher, Mohammed Shami, has a broken right wrist. Because of which Shami is expected to be absent from the squad for the remaining three matches of the test series against Australia.
During India’s second inning, Pat Cummins’ rising ball hit the wrist of the pacemaker, after which he had to leave the field. Due to his injury at retirement, the Indian innings ended with just 36 points in 21.2 overs. This is India’s lowest score in testing history.

Shami (Mohammed Shami) was then taken to hospital for a CT scan, where a fractured bowling arm was confirmed.
A BCCI source said: “Mohammed Shami has a broken hand and the chances of his return in the three remaining matches of the Test Series are slim.”
He said Mohammed Siraj has played brilliantly in two training matches and could make his Boxing Day Test debut in Melbourne.
Virat Kohli will not be available for the next three matches due to paternity leave, which is why the Indian team will face a lot of problems.
