New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) A day before the start of the Test series against Pakistan, India suffered a jolt with two strike bowlers R P Singh and S Sreesanth being ruled out of the first match at the Feroz Shah Kotla here on Thursday.
A brief BCCI press release said due to injury, Sreesanth and R.P.
Singh have been ruled out of the first Test and Munaf Patel has been drafted into the team.
Indian team cricket manager Lalchand Rajput said R P Singh had a sprain below the right armpit area.
R P Singh took part in the team practice session this evening for a while but left for the dressing room earlier than other team members.
He was in his paces along with the other team members in the light work out for around 30 minutes and later bowled to Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik and Sachin Tendulkar before abruptly leaving for the dressing room.
Sreesanth, on the other hand, had a shoulder injury which it seemed he had picked up at Jaipur during the final ODI against Pakistan.
The Kerala pacer did not accompany the team for practice session at Kotla this evening.
