Gambhir not fit for third Test

India are in a spot of bother with their key players getting injured during crucial times. Gambhir is not fit now in the crucial third test against Sri-Lanka. India need to win this Test Match to level the series.Gambhir has a swelling in his knee which forced him to sit for the second Test as well.

Murali Vijay will retain his place in the absence of Gambhir. India have more problems since Harbhajan is not completely fit. India are not very sure whether Harbhajan can play the third Test. If Harbhajan sits out India would have to play Amit Mishra are go for a third seamer Munaf Patel.

IPL has a huge impact on players and nowadays players are more prone to injuries. Sehwag who has missed both the T20 World cup because of injury, then other people who get frequent injuries are who re not fit are Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan and now Gambhir well the list just goes on. This should be looked as a series issue or else we would see some great players getting retired very soon to play county leagues.
