A big blow to the Kangaroo team ahead of India’s tour of Australia.
The Kangaroo cricket team has suffered a major setback and are in a shock.
Before the start of the third day of the second and final Test against Pakistan, Kangaroo batsman Usman Khawaja, who has been in the form from the first day, could not make it to the ground.
He suffered a knee injury during practice. After examination, it was found that his knee has miniscule tear.
Because of this, he probably will not be able to bat even in the fourth innings of the second Test.
Pakistan set a target of 538 for Australia to win In the first Test of the series, Usman Khawaja, who became the defender of the Kangaroo team, scored a magnificent century.
With his historic innings, the match ended on equal footing. Once again the team hoped him to play such an innings but he was seriously injured.
In the absence of Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch started the batting in the fourth innings for the Australia. But Marsh soon returned to the pavilion.
Khwaja was taken to the hospital for a scan on Thursday.
It was found in the investigation that he has injuries to his knee and may need to be operated to recover from it, after which he will stay six to 12 weeks away from the ground.
In such a scenario, Khawaja playing in the four-match home Test series against India is doubtful.
Veterans like Steve Smith and David Warner will not be able to play against India due to the ban.
Khwaja not playing in the series would be a big blow to the Australian team.
