India already have their first injury victims even before the Test series against the West Indies begins.
Pace spearhead Zaheer Khan and fellow fast bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth have been ruled out of the entire Test series against the Windies.
Karnataka medium pacer Abhimanyu Mithun and Uttar Pradesh's swing bowler Praveen Kumar have been named as their replacements.
Zaheer is nursing a right ankle injury while Sreesanth has an elbow problem. The BCCI revealed that both players will be given adequate time to recover from their respective injuries.
Both Zaheer and Sreesanth were part of India’s World Cup-winning squad and then went on to play in the IPL for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kochi Tuskers Kerala respectively.
