Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma and Kane Williamson have been ruled out of the second Test between India and New Zealand in Mumbai.
Fast bowler Ishant Sharma dislocated his left little finger during the final day of the 1st Test match in Kanpur. He is thus ruled out of the 2nd Test in Mumbai.
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja suffered a right forearm injury during the 1st Test match in Kanpur. After undergoing scans, he was diagnosed with a swelling on his forearm. He has been advised rest and is thus ruled out of the 2nd Test in Mumbai.
Ajinkya Rahane sustained a minor left hamstring strain while fielding on the final day of the 1st Test match in Kanpur. Since he has not recovered completely, he has been ruled out of the 2nd Test in Mumbai. His progress will be closely monitored by the BCCI Medical team.
Kane Williamson’s elbow injury has flared up again. “His left elbow tendon flared up again through the last test,” NZ head coach Gary Stead said.
“He was obviously in considerable discomfort throughout the test and since then, subsequently, it hasn’t got better at all.”
“It looks like it could be for a sustained period.”
