KL Rahul has been ruled out of the two-match Test series against New Zealand starting in Kanpur on Thursday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a media statement on Tuesday that the Indian opening batsman had developed a muscle strain on his left thigh. Suryakumar Yadav has been added to the squad as KL Rahul’s replacement. Rahul’s injury is a huge setback for the Indian team with people like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli already missing. Kohli will return to lead the team in the second Test in Mumbai, but Rohit is reassured of the entire series.

“Team India batsman KL Rahul has suffered a muscle strain on his left thigh and has been ruled out of the upcoming 2-match Paytm Test series against New Zealand. He will now undergo rehabilitation at NCA in preparation for the series against South Zealand. “Africa is scheduled for next month. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has appointed Suryakumar Yadav as KL Rahul’s replacement,” the BCCI said in a media statement.

India Test Group: Ajinkya Rahane (Captain), Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara (Vice-Captain), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), KS Bharat (wicketkeeper), Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Yar Isant, Axar Patel, Axar Patel, Axar Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Md. Siraj, Prasidh Krishna
