World Test Championship 2023: The Indian cricket team recently won the series by defeating Australia 2-1 in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Along with this series, Team India has also booked the ticket for the final of the World Test Championship. This is the second time in a row that the Indian team will be seen playing in this high profile match. But before this match, a big problem has arisen in front of the team. Actually, three star players of Team India will not be able to play in this big match.
1. Shreyas Iyer
A big update has come out about Team India’s star batsman Shreyas Iyer. Iyer suffered a back injury during the fourth Test match against Australia. After this he could not even come out to bat in India’s first innings. Since then Iyer has been trying to regain fitness. But this player will not be able to enter the field of play for the next 4-5 months. On the other hand, Iyer has been ruled out of the entire IPL season and the final of the World Test Championship this year.
2. Rishabh Pant
Team India’s star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant had become a victim of a fatal car accident before the beginning of this year. He was seriously injured after this accident. This player is now out of action for several months to come. Apart from the final of the World Test Championship, Pant can also stay out of the ODI World Cup to be held later this year.
3. Jasprit Bumrah
Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is also troubled by his back injury for a long time. Bumrah will not be able to play in the World Test Championship this time. Earlier, he could not play in Asia Cup 2022, T20 World Cup 2022 and Border-Gavaskar series as well. Bumrah could have been a lethal option in English conditions, but now the team management has the headache of finding a replacement for the player.
