The BCCI has appointed Amit Shah as the second physio of the Indian team, to support Nitin Patel. India have had to contend with a growing list of injured players in recent times, and the inclusion of Shah will ease the burden on the team's support staff.
"Amit Shah has joined Team India as its second physio. He and Nitin Patel will now work together," a BCCI official informed PTI. Shah was Kolkata Knight Riders' pyhsio during the third edition of the IPL. He was reportedly sent an SOS by the Indian team following an increasing list of fitness concerns during the ongoing Mohali Test against Australia.
India's biggest injury worry going into the final day of the first Test is VVS Laxman, who has endured back spasms through the match, forcing him to bat below his usual position in the first innings. It remains to be seen whether he bats in the second. Ishant Sharma has also struggled, with a leg niggle that allowed him to bowl just 11.4 overs in the first innings.
