Another injury concern for touring side England as pacer side England as pacer Mark Wood who bowled just five overs on Day 3 of the first Test in Antigua.
Wood spent a large portion of the match out of the park and reieved treatment.
arlier, England’s in-form pace bowler Ollie Robinson was ruled out of the first Test.
Former England captain Mike Atherton has voiced his concerns about Wood’s elbow injury, comparing the fast bowler to his injury-prone colleague, Jofra Archer.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the match, Atherton said, “Right elbow for a fast bowler [is] worrying, think of Jofra Archer. He’s not going to bowl again in this game I wouldn’t have thought and there must be a doubt for Barbados.
“When you look at the shape of England’s attack, it’s the pace that gives them that extra edge and it’s Mark Wood. Of the three that England fancy- Jofra Archer, Olly Stone and Mark Wood – Mark Wood was the last man standing and now it looks as though he’s injured as well, so it’s a blow for England.”
Wood injury has left England at a tricky position in the match as the fellow bowling mate Ollie Robinson is also a doubt for the second Test.
