Star Indian Pacer Injured Just Before Test Series Against England – Big Blow for Team India



The team will play 1st Test on January 25 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Pacer Prasidh Krishna suffered left quadriceps injury during Karnataka’s Ranji Trophy match against Gujarat. This has cast doubt on his participation in upcoming events, including the home Test series against England. Prasidh left the field after 14.5 overs at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Despite his injury, he took crucial wickets of Manan Hingrajia and Siddharth Desai. It’s likely that Prasidh will miss ongoing match against Gujarat while waiting for MRI results. His availability for upcoming five-match home Test series against England is uncertain. Quadriceps injuries take four to six weeks to recover. The 27-year-old is receiving medical attention from Karnataka team’s physiotherapist but has the option to seek support from India ‘A’ support staff. Prasidh recently made his Test cricket debut during India’s tour of South Africa after being absent for almost a year due to a lumbar stress fracture.
