India’s Mohammed Shami retired hurt after being struck on the right forearm off Australia pacer Pat Cummins’ bowling on the third day of the first Day-Night Test match at the Adelaide Oval.
Out on the crease after none of the India batsmen reached double figures, Shami joined Umesh Yadav with India looking in danger of posting its lowest Test total.
However, India could not prevent it from happening when Shami failed to evade a short delivery. The team folded with 36/9 on the scoreboard.
After checking on Shami, the team physio was called back on the field as India’s No. 11 visibly seemed to be in a lot of pain.
“Shami’s going for a scan now. He could hardly lift his arm. We’ll know more in the evening,” said skipper Virat Kohli after the match. An official update from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is pending.
