Injured Bairstow set to bat

by Wisden Staff 15 minute read

Jonny Bairstow has batted in the nets ahead of play and is hopeful of batting during England’s second innings of the third Test at Trent Bridge.

The wicketkeeper sustained a small fracture to a finger to his left hand on day three, but has suffered no displacement, leaving open the possibility that he could bat without doing any further damage – albeit in some pain.

England began day four 498 runs behind India and require a minor miracle to avoid defeat.
