India team won the second match against the arch-rivals Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2018. When the whole country is busy enjoying the moment of victory, on the other hand, Indian cricket team management would be a bit worried as some of the players have faced injuries. The one that can affect the team line is the back injury of Hardik Pandya which he faced while bowling in the match against Pakistan.
BCCI has announced that Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur have been ruled out of the ongoing Asia Cup 2018 owing to injuries. Talking about the replacement, BCCI's senior selection committee has now selected Deepak Chahar, Ravindra Jadeja and Siddharth Kaul. All the three players will be joining the team in Dubai on Thursday.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya had suffered an acute lower back spasm during the game against Pakistan on Wednesday and is undergoing treatment and assessment by the BCCI medical team. Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Axar Patel injured his left index finger while fielding against Pakistan. He was sent for scans and the results showed that he had a tendon tear.
On the other hand, right-arm pacer Shardul Thakur had experienced right hip and groin soreness after the match against Hong Kong. The Rohit Sharma-led Indian side, who had thrashed arch-rivals Pakistan by eight wickets on Wednesday, will take on Bangladesh in their first Super four game on Friday.
