IND vs SA 2ND Test: Indian cricketers are sweating in the nets before the second test against South Africa. In the first match, India had to face a humiliating defeat by an innings and 32 runs at the hands of host South Africa. The Indian team has suffered a major setback before the second Test match starting from January 3 in Cape Town. The team’s bowling all-rounder Shardul Thakur suffered a shoulder injury while batting in the nets on Saturday. However, the seriousness of Shardul’s injury has not been confirmed yet. His shoulder can be scanned if needed
Let us tell you that after getting injured, Shardul was seen in a lot of pain and this right-arm medium pacer did not even bowl in the nets again. He injured his left shoulder while attempting a throwdown from the team’s assistant throwdown specialist. This incident happened about 15 minutes after the game. The ball was thrown from a distance. Shardul caught it awkwardly, due to which his left shoulder got injured. Later he started screaming in pain. Shardul scored useful runs with the bat in the first innings of the first Test played in Johannesburg and dismissed South African opener Dean Elgar on a personal score of 185 runs.
It is noteworthy that after Shardul completed the throwdown session, the team physios applied an ice pack on his injured shoulder. A two-Test series is being played between India and South Africa. This series is part of the World Test Championship 2023-2025 season. If India wants to level the series then it will have to win the second and final Test match. Shardul is successful in making a place in the team due to his ability to bat in the lower order. He scored a total of 26 runs in both the innings of the first test while taking one wicket while conceding 101 runs in 19 overs. If his injury becomes serious, India may be forced to make major changes in the second Test.
