Mark Wood set to miss Headingley Test with jarred shoulder

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed that Mark Wood will miss Headingley Test with jarred right shoulder

After the Lord’s Test, there were concerns over the fitness of England pacer Mark Wood, who was captured on the camera with ice pack. While England skipper Joe Root did not have a clear update on his fitness, the ECB confirmed that the pacer would miss the Headingley Test with a jarred right shoulder. The pacer was injured on the fourth day of the Test, during his attempt to save a few runs for his side. 

“England seamer Mark Wood has been ruled out of the LV= Insurance third Test against India with a jarred right shoulder,” confirmed ECB’s press release. 

“He will remain with the squad in Leeds and will continue his rehab with the England medical team. The 31-year-old will be assessed at the end of this Test match,” it added.

England haven't added any fast bowler in their squad as cover. The tearaway paceman claimed five wickets in the second Test at Lord's.

Saqib Mahmood, who was picked in the squad as a replacement for Stuart Broad, now stands with a chance of making his debut Test appearance in Headingley if the Three Lions decide on going with a four-man pace attack.
