The India vs Australia Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test series is currently locked at 1-1 after India vs Australia SCG Test ended in a draw after a fine batting performance from the visitors in the 2nd innings. However, ahead of the Gabba Test, Australia are sweating over Will Pucovski's injury with the youngster only returning to the Australian side during the third Test after being sidelined due to a concussion before the start of the Test series.
According to the latest report by cricket.com.au Pucovski suffered a "shoulder subluxation" which happens when the ball of the upper arm bone partly comes out of the socket in the shoulder. A Cricket Australia spokesperson has said that the 22-year-old will continue rest and rehabilitation over the next two days before a decision is made on his fitness for the fourth and final Test at Brisbane.
Pucovski made an excellent start to his international Test career scoring 62 in the first innings, but in second innings he could only score 10 runs. If the opener does not get fit on time for India vs Australia 4th Test 2021, then Marcus Harris could be recalled into the side. There are also chances that Matthew Wade could also be asked to open the innings as he did in the first two Test matches.
Apart from the Pucovski injury concern, there are some serious doubts over David Warner's injury as well before the Gabba Test. The left-handed opener on Monday said that he still felt nervous about his groin injury, as his return from a lengthy layoff coincided with the back-to-back Tests. Warner missed the first two Tests due to injury.
The India vs Australia 4th Test 2021 will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane from January 15-19.
