Former cricketer batsman VVS Laxman is shocked by the injuries that happened to the 3 Indian players of the previous Test match against New Zealand.
With the skipper, Virat made his comeback to the squad. Someone was supposed to be dropped by the BCCI, but the reason given was something not digestible by anyone. Even the former cricketer VVS raised the question over injuries.
Before the 2nd Test series in Mumbai, the BCCI announced the 11-men squad where the names of the skipper Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja were nowhere to be found.
But names like- the Indian Captain Virat Kohli announced himself, Mohammad Siraj, and Jayant Yadav are the replacements of the “injured players”.
VVS Laxman during his appearance on Star Sports asked if something had happened to the players this morning as Kohli didn’t mention anything during the press conference. VVS said:
“Did something happen this morning? But Virat Kohli said nothing about it in the press conference yesterday. It is a big blow. Jadeja was injured in that England series and Axar Patel came in and he was named Player of the Series.”
Not only VVS Laxman it is, but also Wasim Jaffer and others have trolled this reason in multiple ways. Some took it to Twitter with cryptic posts, while others made it hilarious.
Everyone on Twitter was so amused and had trolled the Indian Skipper Virat and head coach Rahul Dravid.
India after winning the toss chose to bat, 2nd Test series has begun at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
