The second test match between India and England is going to start from tomorrow at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The England team had lost the first test match of the series by 9 wickets.

Both the teams are struggling with a few injury problems. Steven Finn has still not got 100% fit and there is a good possibility that he had to miss the second test match as well, on the other hand, the Indian fast bowler, Umesh Yadav, who was very impressive in the first test match at Ahmedabad, has also got injured and is likely to miss the second test. Ashok Dinda has been included in the team as the cover for Umesh Yadav, but, he is not likely to get a place in the XI. Ishant Sharma would get a paying opportunity if Yadav doesn’t manage to get fit before the match.

On the other hand, the England team is expected to make a few changes. Bresnan looked very ordinary in the first test match and he was the most likely to be left out of the XI. England might go with two spinners as the Wankhede track is expected to turn from the very first day. In that case, Monty Panesar might get a game. Since, Finn hasn’t managed to get fit, so, Broad will get another opportunity.

Talking to the reporters today, the Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, “Unfortunately, Umesh has injured himself and he might not be able to get fit before the match. This is obviously not good news for us as Umesh had bowled brilliantly in the first test match.”

“We will again go with the combination of two fast bowlers and two spinners. Hopefully, this would not be a low and slow wicket as the previous one.”
