India have now lost Bumrah for the final test. India are now missing Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, KL Rahul, Hanuma Vihari, and possibly Ravi Ashwin. Remarkable they are still in the series.

It’s the slowness and lack of bounce in the pitches most likely. Granted any other Asian side would have been easily rolled.

But also why when they were bundled for 36, there weren’t calls
To strip them of their Test status. They are still in the series.

Whoa, this must be some kind of record. So many injuries! I didn't see any familiar name in that bowling attack, apart from Saini and he's injured too now.

India have done fairly well in this test so far, again picking up another injury, they’ve really had no luck on this tour.

Even if Australia win this series it will feel hollow due to the amount of injuries India have had and they’ve still been just as good as Australia if not better.

As I’ve said before the ICC ratings mean nothing, India are the best test team in the world

He’s not all that old. 32 I think. Still has a few years left if his form is good. The only current Indian seamer that has a
