India will be sweating on the fitness of Rishabh Pant, who had gone for scans after being hit on the left elbow while batting in the third Test in Sydney against Australia on Saturday, and Ravindra Jadeja, who also left the SCG reportedly for scans after copping a blow to his left-hand thumb while batting.

Wriddhiman Saha is keeping wickets for India in Australia's second innings, while Mayank Agarwal is on the field for Jadeja, who did not take the field at the start of the Australian second innings.

Pant missed a short ball from Pat Cummins and was struck on the elbow. He was in visible pain and batted on for a brief while after being attended to by the physio. Pant started his innings well but lost his flow after the injury and eventually fell for 36 off 67 as India folded for 244 in reply to Australia's 338.

WATCH:

Pant's keeping was under the scanner in the Test, having dropped two catches in the first innings. Saha was the preferred first-choice keeper for India at the start of the series before Pant was picked from the second game for his superior batting.

Injury for Ravindra Jadeja as well

Meanwhile, Jadeja too was hit on the left thumb by a rising delivery from Mitchell Starc late in the innings. Jadeja too carried on before being unbeaten on 28 off 37 as India ran out of wickets.

It remains to be seen if Jadeja is fit to bowl. He picked up four wickets in the first innings apart from running out Steve Smith, who had made a century.
