India, who had done well in the first Test against England, suffered a setback ahead of the second Test. Youngster Shardul Thakur will miss the second Test at Lord’s. Shardul was known for his ability to shine in both bowling and batting. Shardul took key wickets in the first innings, including English captain Joe Root.

Shardul was injured during training ahead of the second Test. Shardul has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury. The BCCI has not yet made any official announcement regarding the player’s injury. India played four pacers and one spinner in the first Test.

If Shardul is replaced at Lord’s, he will be replaced by spinner R Ashwin or pacer Ishant Sharma. The final decision will depend on the circumstances. Batting will benefit Ashwin. India played the first Test by dismissing a key spinner. It is hoped that Ashwin will be able to shine at Lord’s. Ishant could play if he goes down with four pacers.
