India will be without their fast bowler Mohammed Shami and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha for the fifth and final Test in Chennai starting from December 16. Both the players are also missing the ongoing fourth Test in Mumbai

The BCCI, on Sunday, sent out a release saying Shami has “soreness in his right knee and has been advised rest and rehabilitation. He will be going to the National Cricket Academy (NCA), Bengaluru to start his recovery programme.”

The fast bowler, who has been performing brilliantly in the series, has a history with his knee. He had undergone a knee surgery after the last World Cup and was out for 15 months and speaking before the fourth Test, Kohli had said that the team will not take a chance with his knee.

He had said:“Because he has a history of knee surgery, we don’t want to push a player to an extent where we lose him for the whole season.”


On the other hand, Saha, who also missed the third Test in Mohali, has still not recovered from the thigh injury that he sustained during the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Ajinkya Rahane has already been ruled out of the series after sustaining an avulsion fracture on his right index finger during a practice session.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
