England all-rounder Woakes suffers crack in right thumb
New Delhi: The England cricket team's injury woes continued as all-rounder Chris Woakes was diagnosed with a small crack in his right thumb sustained while batting in the third Test in Mohali.
Woakes was struck on the thumb when he tried to fend off a short ball from pacer Mohammed Shami during England's second innings of the Test, in which the visitors went down by 8 wickets on Tuesday.
Woakes went for an X-ray after the game which showed what the England management are describing as a "tiny crack," according to a espncricinfo report.
In addition to the thumb injury, the 27-year-old also has a sore knee, which further dents his prospects for the fourth Test, starting from December 8 in Mumbai.
England have already announced replacements for the injured Haseeb Hameed and Zafar Ansari. Johannesburg-born opening batsman Keaton Jennings is all set to be Alastair Cook’s 11th opening partner in Mumbai.
