Injury scare for Team India ahead of NZ game

The Indian cricket team is facing some challenges before their faceoff against New Zealand at the ICC World Cup 2023 on Sunday. Just a day before the high-octane clash, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan sustained injuries during an optional net session in Dharamsala on Saturday. Yadav was expected to fill up the middle-order batting role in the absence of Hardik Pandya, who got injured in the last match against Bangladesh.

At the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, where the Men in Blue will take on Kiwis, Ishan Kishan was stung by a bee on the back of his head while batting under the floodlights, and Suryakumar Yadav was hit on the forearm while facing a throwdown.

Suryakumar, who was expected to make his World Cup debut and bat at number six against New Zealand, was struck just above his right wrist by a throwdown from D Raghavendra. Kishan, after the bite, was observed jumping and running in pain and could not participate in any further practice sessions and is likely to miss the game.
