Woakes sustains hairline fracture in his right thumb

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Chris Woakes has been diagnosed with a hairline fracture sustained while batting in the third Test in Mohali.

Woakes got nasty snorter from Mohammed Shami which broke the neck protector of his helmet. The very next ball was another well disguised bouncer which Woakes fended awkwardly and it bobbed off his gloves.



It was this delivery that caused some damage to Woakes' finger.

To add insult to injury, the ball lobbed to behind the wicket to end Woakes' innings.

According to a Cricinfo report, Woakes went for an X-ray after the game which showed what the management are describing as a "tiny crack."

Despite this, and some on-going trouble with a sore knee, are hopeful Woakes will be fit for the fourth Test in Mumbai.
