Digital Desk, New Delhi. India’s all-rounder Washington Sundar’s tour of Zimbabwe is in doubt, where the team will play a three-match ODI series. He recently suffered a shoulder injury during a List A match in Manchester, England.
The KL Rahul-led Indian team will leave for Zimbabwe on Saturday morning with VVS Laxman as the head coach. A report in Cricbuzz states that Sundar is under suspicion due to his fitness.
Sundar suffered a shoulder injury while fielding on the field during the Royal London ODI match between Lancashire and Worcestershire at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Lancashire County Cricket Club posted an update on social media regarding him.
Meanwhile, National Cricket Academy (NCA) chief Laxman has been asked to manage the team in the absence of regular coach Rahul Dravid, who has just returned from a two-month tour of England, West Indies and USA. Other members of the support staff who visited Harare include Sairaj Bahule and Hrishikesh Kanitkar.
Notably, he was included in the previously announced 15-man squad under the captaincy of Rahul Shikhar Dhawan. It is learned that Rahul was added at Dravid’s request with the aim of ensuring that the batsman would have a few matches to play before the Asia Cup.
India will play three ODIs as part of the ICC Super League in Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on 18, 20 and 22 August. Zimbabwe has been in good form recently and they defeated Bangladesh in both the ODI and T20 International home series that ended on 10 August.
