The Indian cricket team has been handed two big injury boosts as Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur will be available for the finals of the world test championship against Australia, which are going to start on June 7 at Kennington Oval. Umesh Yadav is recovering from a hamstring strain, but his condition is not serious. The medical team of the BCCI, in collaboration with the medical team of the Kolkata Knight Riders, is keeping a tab on the fast bowler. Shardul Thakur has regained his fitness and will be available for the team. However, BCCI is taking a wait-and-see approach for JayadevUnadkat, and if he misses out, a replacement can be named by May 23.
Unadkat suffered a shoulder injury and has been ruled out of the IPL in 2023. The World Test Championship is exactly a month later, so there is still time for him to recover and regain his fitness. This is the reason why selectors are not rushing to name a replacement for the left-arm seamer and are keeping a close tab on the two pacers.
