Dhawan injured on worn-out practice pitch

5th Jun, 2023
Team India has been asking for fresh net practice wickets at the Gabba several times for last two days but our request has not been met. We have been asked to practice on worn out wickets with uneven bounce, because of which two of our batsmen have injured themselves today morning.

One of the two batsmen, Shikar Dhawan – who was one of the overnight batsmen on the fourth morning of the Test – had a right wrist injury due to which he was unable to bat in the morning. He is been examined by our physio, who will assess his fitness in time.
