Australia is engaging with injuries ahead of the first of the four-match Test series against India. Their most recent worry in this perspective is a tremendous one with their extraordinary batsman Steve Smith practicing for just 10 minutes because of a sore back on Tuesday. It will be an extreme blow for the hosts if Smith is ruled out of the initial Test as they are now without their ace opener David Warner.

Smith was in incredible form in the ODI series against the Men-in-Blue scoring two back-to-back centuries. He likewise looked in splendid touch during the T20Is and is positively anticipating becoming wildly successful in the Tests. Steve Smith has an incredible record across all formats, particularly in Tests, against India and he couldn't want anything more than to keep scoring centuries against the visiting side. Yet, for that to occur, he should get fit first.

The scenes at the Adelaide Oval weren't empowering three days in front of the pink-ball Test. As indicated by a report in Sydney Morning Herald, Steve Smith practiced for just a short time after routine warm-up and afterward walked away addressing the physio. The Cricket Australia (CA) representative affirmed that the previous captain is getting treatment for back soreness and will return to training just for Wednesday. It is to be seen if Smith recaptures fitness before the 1st Test match against India.

Australia's injury concerns  

Meanwhile, Australia is experiencing injury issues with their main members. Steve Smith's sore back is an additional worry for them now. Among others injured, Warner is ruled out of the first Test because of a hamstring injury. Pucovski endured a concussion in the wake of being hit on the head by Kartik Tyagi in the warm-up game.

Cameron Green appears to be set for a potential Test debut in Adelaide. Cameron Green also needs to clear concussion tests first. Green was hit brutally by Jasprit Bumrah on the head in the day-night warm-up match.
