Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul ruled out of the second Test vs England

After an embarrassing defeat in the first Test against England at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, India has got another major blow as allrounder Ravindra Jadeja and batter KL Rahul have been ruled out of the second game. Notably, Jadeja sustained a hamstring injury during Day 4 of the first game while Rahul complained of a right quadriceps pain.

The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket In India) medical team will monitor the duo’s progress. The Men’s selection committee has also named replacements for the duo as Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan has finally earned his maiden call-up to the Indian team. Apart from him, spin all-rounder Washington Sundar has also been added to India’s squad along with Uttar Pradesh’s left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar.

India’s updated squad for 2nd Test: Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat (WK), Dhruv Jurel (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Avesh Khan, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Washington Sundar, Sourabh Kumar.
