Shardul Thakur is expected to spend at least seven weeks in rehabilitation after acquiring a right adductor tendon injury on the Test debut. As a result, it is likely to be out of consideration for the T20I and Test India squads on their tour of Australia.
Australia's tour of Australia begins on November 21 with a three-game T20I series. The first test begins on December 6, while the first of the three ODI is scheduled for January 12.
"Even if I try hard, I will not be able to get in shape before the second test in Australia [which starts on December 14] A The place in the T20I or the exams will be difficult," said Thakur The Indian Express ] "I'll be watching the one-day-olds in their place, let's see how my rehabilitation goes, I'll continue my training for the next seven weeks."
Thakur spent almost all of his first test game off the field. He could only play 10 installments on the first morning of the Hyderabad Test against the West Indies and, the next day, he came out at number 11 so that India could build a winning lead. The 27-year-old was later replaced in the ODI squad of India by Umesh Yadav.
Thakur also had injury problems during the Asian Cup. He played just one game, against Hong Kong in September, before a groin injury meant he had to return home. After returning, he played a game from List A, a Vijay Hazare Trophy match for Mumbai against the Punjab, before being called to the test team and suffering adductor damage.
"Thakur said." During the test match, I felt my muscles pulled out. I started limping and when Virat (Kohli) asked me what was wrong, I told her that it felt like a tear. "
