first_imgIn a massive blow to the Indian cricket team, opener Gautam Gambhir and pacer Ishant Sharma were on Friday ruled out of the second Test against Australia due to knee injuries while VVS Laxman became doubtful on account of back spasms.The celebrations of a narrow one-wicket win over the visitors on Friday had not even ended when the Indians were left to deal with the twin loss ahead of the second and final match of series scheduled from October 9 in Bangalore.”I have an injury and I won’t be playing in the Bangalore Test,” Gambhir told PTI.The BCCI named batsman Abhinav Mukund and pacer Jaydev Unadkat as replacements for Gambhir and Ishant.”Gautam Gambhir and Ishant Sharma have been ruled out of the Bangalore Test against Australia, on account of injuries to their right knees. The All-India Selection Committee has picked Abhinav Mukund and Jaydev Unadkat in their place. Mukund and Unadkat will be replaced in the squads for the NKP Salve Challenger Trophy by Harpreet Singh and Pankaj Singh respectively,” BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.While Mukund plays for India Red, Unadkat represents India Green in the tournament.Gambhir, who scored 25 and 0 in the first Test against Australia, was hit in the knee while fielding at short leg on Thursda when he took evasive action to save himself from a Michael Hussey sweep shot off Pragyan Ojha.Ishant, on the other hand, had been carrying the injury in the match.Concerns also remain about Laxman’s status who batted through pain to heroically guide India to a win in Bangalore.advertisementBangalore Test is a must-win game for us: HusseyDown 0-1 in the series, Australia batsman Mike Hussey on Friday said the visitors are determined to come out with flying colours in the second and final Test against India starting here on Saturday.Incidentally, the second Test against India would be Australia’s last five-day game before this year’s Ashes but Hussey said their priority now is to win the next match and level the series.”Every Test match is big. Yes, it is the last Test before the Ashes but we are not thinking about it this stage. We are 0-1 down in the series and we have to win this match and level the series,” Hussey told reporters.”That is the focus at this moment…To play good, disciplined Test cricket for long periods of time. If we play with the same intensity that we did in Mohali, we have a good chance of leveling the series,” he added.The left-handed batsman, however, is a disappointing man to have lost the Mohali Test from a winning position.”It was a Test match which we could have won. We had our chances, but we could not do the job and get over the line. After match, the dressing room was very quiet,” Hussey said.”From a positive point of view, we did a lot of things right. We are playing against the number one team in the world with a relatively young team. We will try to maintain that consistency here,” he said.Asked why is India such a tough opponent on home soil, Hussey said, “They know how to handle pressure and how to handle every situation. They have done it many many times before.”Their bowlers, Harbhajan (Singh) and Zaheer Khan has played lot of Test cricket and has got lot of experience. They know the conditions well and how to use it to their benefit,” he said.last_img read more
