Accoridng to the reports of ESPNCricinfo, the hosts also have suffered some blows as Ajinkya Rahane, Ishant Sharma, and Ravindra Jadeja have been sidelined from the game. Ishant dislocated his left little finger during the final day of the Kanpur Test.

Jadeja suffered a right forearm injury during the first Test and he has also been sustaining a swelling on his forearm which was revealed after undergoing scans. He’s been advised to take some rest. Rahane sustained a minor injury in his left hamstring while fielding on the final day in Kanpur and he has not been able to attain complete recovery since.

The second Test was scheduled to be commencing at 9:30 am on Friday but the wet outfield due to the persistent rain in Mumbai in the last couple of days has delayed the toss as well. Some of the recent reports have suggested that the next inspection will be taking place at 10:30.
