Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis is doubtful to play in the second ODI against India, according to reports that he was injured during the opening match of the series in Sydney on Friday.
Stoinis began to groan in pain after throwing his second ball of the 7th over. He immediately left the field and Glenn Maxwell completed the over. According to Cricket.com, a 31-year-old player has pain in the left side of the abdomen and scans will be done to know the severity of the injury.
All-rounder Cameron Green and Moises Henriques could be in the running for the second ODI at the SCG on Sunday due to Stoinis injury. Stoins, who landed at number four in the first ODI, could not do anything with the bat. He had to return to ‘zero’.
Steve Smith said, “I don’t know how Stoinis is.” I have not seen him, but I hope he gets well. But if he does not recover, then someone will have to come in his place and someone who is a bowler … maybe Cameron (Green), ‘Green is in good form both in bat and ball during Sheffield Shield.
