Even before the start of the Johannesburg Test, Team India had suffered a major setback due to the injury of captain Virat Kohli, who was ruled out of this Test due to a back problem.
The first day of the Johannesburg Test was not particularly good for the Indian team. Team India suffered a setback even before the start of the match due to the injury of captain Virat Kohli. After that the team’s batting also looked breathless and by the end of the day’s play, the team’s fast bowler Mohammad Siraj also went out of the field after getting injured during his over, which has given a new headache to Team India.
Team India was bowling in the last session of the day and only 7 balls were left for the game to end. Mohammad Siraj’s over was going on and he started running round the wicket for the last ball. But as soon as the time came to release the ball, he stopped coming close to the stumps and started flexing by holding his right thigh.
Seeing Siraj’s condition, team physio Nitin Patel immediately rushed to the ground and started talking to Siraj. The day’s play was about to end, so the physio decided to take Siraj off the field instead of checking him on the field.
However, there is no statement from the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Siraj’s injury yet. But seeing Siraj, it seemed that there was some problem in his hamstring, which has put the Indian team in trouble. It takes time to recover from a hamstring problem and in such a situation, if the injury becomes serious, then Team India will have to bowl without their star bowler in this match.
