England fast bowler Mark Wood will miss his country's tour to India in November, after suffering from an ankle injury and is set to undergo a third ankle surgery in 12 months.
There is no confirmation over when he will come back but the England medical staff have not ruled the possibility of him coming back for the ODI leg of his side's tour early next year.
Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has said that he wanted to see 15- a side matches, so that everybody got an opportunity to be involved in the proceedings.
“Six more players will now get an opportunity in every game. That’s going to be incredible. It is all about encouragement. If the boys are missing their school and leaving academics to play cricket then they should be either bowling or batting. Otherwise they would be wasting their time. Now, all the 15 players in the team will have some performance to share with their neighbours. The whole idea is to encourage them by creating more opportunities,” Tendulkar told the Hindustan Times.
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that Virat Kohli should break his record for the most number of centuries for an Indian captain during the course of the home season.

A superb late burst of 4 for 13 from New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite helped them clinch a twelve-run win over South Africa Women in the opening ODI at Kimberly.
Chasing 128, the hosts were all out for 116, losing their last four wickets without scoring a single run.
Former Pakistan batsman Inzamam Ul-Haq has said that while the Indian cricket team is at present the Number One side in the world, their performance overseas has not been as good as say Pakistan, who in August levelled the four-match Test series against England in England 2-2.
A disgruntled Inzamam claimed, “India is playing 13 Tests at home in the next few months, we have not played at home since 2009. But, I still believe this Pakistan team can do well anywhere and against anyone. The way we fought back from 1-2 down to level the series in England was a heartening performance. India has not done that well outside their country in Tests. They lost their last series in England.“

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association(TNCA) is not likely to make any move in adopting the recommendations given by the Lodha panel, before the 17th of October when the Supreme Court gives outs the verdict.
If the recommendations are considered then all the office bearers at present, including the association president Mr. N Srinivasan will need to vacate their position as the chief of the body.
"Most of the members of the association feel that it will be impossible to fill the void if there's no time even to convene a meeting and implement the recommendations. So it's higly unlikely that we are going to give any letter to the Supreme Court before October 17," A source said.
