Zaheer Khan out of second Test
India fast bowler Zaheer Khan has been ruled out of the second Test
against England at Trent Bridge with a hamstring injury, captain
Mahendra Singh Dhoni said Thursday.
Left-arm quick Zaheer broke down in the first Test at Lord's, which
India lost by 196 runs, after taking two wickets for 18 runs in 13.3
first innings overs and didn't bowl again in the match.
The 32-year-old was instrumental in India's seven-wicket win in the
corresponding Trent Bridge Test against England four years ago, taking
nine wickets for 134 runs in the match.
Now his place is set to go to either fast bowler Shanthakumaran
Sreesanth or seamer Munaf Patel.
"I think he is ruled out of this game," Dhoni speaking to reporters
at Trent Bridge on Thursday, the day before the second Test starts, said
of Zaheer. AFP
