England suffered a setback before the third Test of the series at Headingley Leeds. Fast bowler Mark Wood has been ruled out of the third Test due to a shoulder injury. Wood’s injury has increased England’s hardship. The team has already lost Joffra Archer, Stuart Broad and Chris Vox, and Wood’s departure is a big blow to captain Joe Root and team management. The big question before Root is who should be allowed to replace Wood in the third Test. Sabiq Mahmood and Crete Overton could both get a chance. Let us tell you what will be the biggest advantage for Team India Leeds if Wood Outta.
In fact, Mark Wood and Ollie Robinson would step shoulder to shoulder with James Anderson after Stuart Broad left the entire Test series. In the second match, Wood played brilliantly as the third fast bowler and took wickets like Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. The English pace attack, which had already looked weak in Wood’s absence, now looks more inexperienced. In addition, Wood disturbed Indian batsmen in the Second Test based on his speed. England’s problem in the third Test is who gets the ball after the first spell of Anderson and Robinson. That is, if the Indian batsmen did not give Anderson-Robinson a wicket in the early overs, Team India could easily dominate the British.

Sakheeb Mahmood looks to have more chances to play Mark Wood instead. Shakib may make his debut in Test cricket. His performance in white ball cricket was good for England. The squad has added David Malan for the third Test, but Dominic Sibley and Jack Crowley have shown their way out of the squad due to consistently poor performances. The third Test between India and England will be held from August 25.
