Another Star India Pacer After Mohammed Shami Gets Injured. Report Says He Is Doubtful For England Tests


On Friday, Pacer Prasidh Krishna picked up a left quadriceps injury during Karnataka's Ranji Trophy match against Gujarat, casting a cloud of uncertainty over his availability for selection for the upcoming assignments, including India's home Test series against England. India pacer Prasidh limped out of the field after bowling 14.5 overs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad during the Group C match. The paceman picked up the wickets of Manan Hingrajia and Siddharth Desai as Karnataka bundled out Gujarat for 264 runs in 88 overs on the first day.
While his MRI scan results are awaited, Prasidh is all set to miss the match against Gujarat. However, his availability for the five-match home Test series against England, starting later this month, is yet to be ascertained. But in general, quadriceps injuries take at least four to six weeks to heal, depending on their intensity.
The 27-year-old is currently under the care of Karnataka team physio, but as a BCCI contracted player, he can also link up with the India 'A' support staff, who are also in Ahmedabad as part of the two-day match against the touring England Lions.
