With Ishant Sharma already out of the fourth Test with ankle injury, Bhuvneshwar Kumar‘s injury will certainly add to the problems of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Duncan Fletcher. Bhuvneshwar and Ishant Sharma didn’t take part in the warm-up football session after India lost the Test on the fifth day at Southampton. Bhuvi has taken 15 wickets and scored 228 runs in the series. He has so far bowled 124.5 overs.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, “I think, Bhuvi seemed to be a bit tired. But he came back nicely after that first spell. But I thought he was slightly on the shorter side. He got the right length in the first two Tests, but here he was slightly short. Apart from that I am quite happy with the effort put in by fast bowlers.”

The entire Indian team would be hoping that Bhuvi can recover in time.
