India spinners in race to be fit for Boxing Day test

India spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are both under an injury cloud ahead of the Boxing Day test against Australia, leaving the tourists with a potential selection conundrum. India coach Ravi Shastri said that offspinner Ashwin was still recovering from an abdominal strain that caused him to miss the second test in Perth, while left-arm spinner Jadeja had been nursing a shoulder problem. Shastri revealed that Jadeja’s injury had also ruled him out at Perth, where India went with a four-prong pace attack and duly slumped to a 146-run loss that levelled the four-test series 1-1. Ashwin also needed to be evaluated over the next 48 hours. The Indian and Australian squad will face off each other on December 26 for their test third match for the ongoing series in Melbourne.
