English pacer Mark Wood might miss out on their third test match against India which is scheduled to be played at the legendary Yorkshire Cricket Stadium, Headingley, owing to an injury that he picked up while fielding in the Lord’s test. He has, however, been picked in the squad for the third test and if his conditions improve, he might as well play in the match. The chances of that happening though, are unfortunately low.

England coach Chris Silverwood, while giving an update about his injury, has said that “The medics are working on him (Wood), we’ll find out more in the next couple of days. We will make a decision, along with him and our medics, closer to the time. But if he’s not right, he’s not right. I certainly won’t push him into playing if he tells me he’s not right. I will look after him.”

Mark Wood has a decent performance in the second test between India and England. The hosts went on to lose the match from a point where they were considered the favourites but Mark Wood’s display in the match had been one of their positive takeaways.

The English pacer has always been very prone to injuries and it might very well be the beginning of the end of the 31 year old’s career. Two of England’s main pacers Jofra Archer and Stuart Broad are already out of the rest of the series due to injuries and it is thus of utmost importance for the English contingent that Mark Wood recovers as soon as possible.
