Usman Khawaja hurt himself when trying a catch on the boundary during the fourth Test of the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy match against India, therefore his ability to play with the bat on the last day is still in question. He was unable to leave the field to bat after the conclusion of India’s innings because Australia assigned nightwatchman Matthew Kuhnemann to bat alongside Travis Head in the last few overs before the finish of play.
After suffering an injury, left-handed batsman Khawaja was helped off the field and was forced to leave the game for almost to two hours while Indian batters continued to score runs in their opening round. Australia scored 480 runs in the first innings thanks to centuries from Khawaja and Cameron Green, but the hosts eventually reached 570/9 thanks to centuries from Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli.
He complains of pain on the outside of his left lower leg, just below the knee. will be evaluated once more on the ground. He did receive an MRI scan, as is customary. According to a team representative, the imaging did not produce any definitive results, according to News Corp.
Before making a decision, the team will need to evaluate Khawaja’s condition through a fitness test. If Khawaja is unable to come out to bat on the final day of the fourth and final Test match of the series, Australia’s chances of batting all day and securing a draw may be severely hampered.
Usman Khawaja made a standout performance in the third Test in Indore, which significantly contributed to Australia’s triumph. Australia came back and won the third Test, securing their spot in the World Test Championship final after India won the first two games of the series and gained a 2-0 lead to keep the Trophy.
India must win the match to secure the final available slot in the WTC final as the final day of the final Test approaches. India would prefer New Zealand to defeat Sri Lanka in one of the two games of the Test series if the game ends in a draw, which appears plausible. The Islanders will play Australia in the WTC summit match if Sri Lanka defeats New Zealand by a score of 2-0 and India loses the fourth Test.
