India vs West Indies 2018: BCCI Gives Injury Update On Shardul Thakur
The BCCI, on Friday, stated it would take a call on the availability of Shardul Thakur for the remainder of the second Test between India and West Indies only after assessing the reports.
Moments after becoming India’s 294th Test player, Shardul Thakur’s debut turned into a nightmare. The debutant walked off in the morning due to a pain in the groin region and did not take to the field for the entire day. As a result, the right-arm pacer could bowl only 1.4 overs on debut. He later went for scans.
Bowling just his second over on Test debut, Thakur finished his run-up with a grimace. He was soon attended by physio Patrick Farhart. The 26-year old did not receive any treatment early on as he and Farhart were seen talking before being joined by skipper Virat Kohli. Thakur soon headed towards the dressing room and did not return thereafter.
The latest injury will be yet another setback for Thakur after the Asia Cup disappointment where he had to bail out midway after complaining of a right hip-groin soreness.
The team-management and BCCI are now awaiting the reports and would take a final call only after assessing the reports.
“Shardul Thakur went for scans and we’re awaiting reports. He’ll be assessed today, and probably for the next few days. Once we get to know what his progress is, his participation will be decided accordingly,” reads a press-release from the BCCI.
Coming to the game, West Indies ended the day on 295 for 7. India were in the driver’s seat for the first two sessions of the game. However, an unbeaten 98 from Roston Chase helped West Indies recover and end the day on a strong note. India had West Indies reeling at 113 for 5. But Chase shared handy stands with Shane Dowrich and Jason Holder to rescue his side.
Well, India will be hoping that Shardul Thakur resumes bowling as soon as possible and help the team in the ongoing Test.
