Mark Wood is uncertain for the rest of the West Indies series due to an elbow injury
The current first Test match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua is set for an exciting finale, with the West Indies needing 286 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. England, on the other hand, has one more session to take all ten wickets. In a high-scoring game, both sides gave each other a run for their money in the series opener.
While the Antigua Test has been entertaining so far, with the chance of a tie, there has been talking of an injury scare in England’s camp. The subject of conversation is pacer Mark Wood, who had to leave the field owing to elbow problems. This may be a major setback for the visitors in this encounter.
On the third day of the first Test, the event occurred during West Indies’ first innings. After complaining of stiffness in his bowling elbow, Mark Wood was ruled out of the rest of the hosts’ first innings. Before lunch, Wood was only able to bowl four overs with the old ball before switching to the new ball.
He was subsequently unable to continue due to his injuries, which caused him to quit the field. The tall bowler only took one wicket, which was that of West Indies Test captain Kraigg Brathwaite. He gave up 45 runs in 17 overs, which included four maidens.
