Before the start of the Border Gavaskar Trophy, the Aussies continued to suffer blow after blow. Star opener David Warner is already out. Young opener Vin Bukovsky missed the first Test due to a Tyagi bouncer injury.
The latest Aussie fast bowler Sean Abbott is likely to miss out. Abbott is reported to be suffering from an ankle injury to his left leg. Abbott, who bowled in the first session as part of the second day's play in the practice match against India in Sydney, bowled 7 overs.
Abbott did not bowl as his muscles tightened shortly after the start of the second session. However, as the pain intensified, he reached the pavilion at the suggestion of the physio. Now there is no chance of Abbott bowling.
If the severity of Abbott's injury is high, it will be a big blow to the Aussies. Sean Abbott is a key bowler for Australia in the Test series. Abbott, who is bold in bowling, binds his opponents.
In the practice match against India, Abbott also took three wickets in 12 overs in the first innings.
The recent injury to Abbott is also going to be an embarrassment for the Aussies.
