Team India opening batter KL Rahul has been ruled out of the upcoming two-match Test series against New Zealand. He sustained a muscle strain on his left thigh.
He will now undergo rehabilitation at National Cricket Academy (NCA) before starting his preparations for the tour of South Africa.
The selection committee has named Suryakumar Yadav as KL Rahul’s replacement. The first Test, which starts on November 25, is scheduled to be played in Kanpur before the action shifts to Mumbai.
