World Cup Or a Tournament Of Injuries?

World Cup is an event, which lasts for a month and a half. The team that will be the last one standing on the 14 July’19 will be so exhausted. Playing eleven matches at different locations and the training and their planning session will surely make them very tired and exhausted.

Seeing the ICC 2019 it can be exclaimed that the percentage of injuries this season is more than any other past season of ICC; may it be players of team India, Australia, England or any other there are players getting injured badly and which directly or indirectly reflects on the performance.

From India: We have already Shikhar Dhawan suffering from a hair fracture in this left thumb fracture during his match-winning 117 against Australia at The Oval on June 9.

With bad news, India also has Buvneshwar Kumar and Vijay Shankar who is partially injured already and are not able to play. Bhuveshwar Kumar has a hamstring injury while defeating Pakistan whereas during training a Jasprit Bumrah Yorker hit Shankar with the blush on this toe and apparently had pain due to which he didn’t even attend the practice session on the continuing day.

From Australia: Stoinis suffered the injury while bowling in the match against India on June 9 which Australia lost by 36 runs. “We’ve been monitoring him. He’s an elite athlete, he’s an elite professional. He’s done everything possible to get himself fit. He wouldn’t give up the opportunity for anything, would he?” Langer was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia official website cricket.com.au.

It is also being Said that “All-rounder Marcus Stoinis is now fit to make a comeback for the remainder of Australia’s World Cup campaign having recovered from a side strain but coach Justin Langer is not sure of his immediate return.”

From England: Jason Roy is suffering from Thigh Injury but is not permanently getting out of the ICC 2019; he hopes to only miss two World Cup games for England with his torn hamstring and is eyeing a return against Australia. The injury presents a “grey area”, Roy admitted, with James Vince stepping in at Old Trafford to face Afghanistan in his absence. Roy has already been ruled out of a second game: Friday’s fixture against Sri Lanka.

“(I’m) targeting Australia but we’ll see how this week goes,” Roy said.

From South Africa: South Africa’s fortunes at the 2019 ICC World Cup have gone from bad to worse as veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the tournament after he failed to recover from a shoulder injury; also he has been ruled out of bowling for the foreseeable future. His replacement Hendricks is a left-arm fast bowler. 

            Another injury blow with Lungi Ngidi sidelined for up to 10 days after suffering a hamstring strain in his side’s World Cup defeat against Bangladesh.

From Afghanistan: Mohammad Shahzad was sent back home after the council mentioned a knee injury, but Shahzad said he was fit. He couldn’t quite deliver as he could only manage 0 and 7 in those two matches. Thereafter, it was learned that his knee injury had aggravated and he had to be ruled out of the tournament. The 18-year-old Ikram Ali Khil was roped in as Shahzad’s replacement.
