Fast bowler Irfan Pathan has replaced injured Vinay Kumar in India’s squad for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.
Kumar has been ruled out with a hamstring injury and will be sidelined for three weeks.
“Vinay Kumar suffered a Grade I right hamstring injury while training. He will hence not be available for the forthcoming tour of Sri Lanka,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) said in a statement.
“The selection committee has named Irfan Pathan as his replacement in the Indian squad.”
India will play five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 during the tour which starts with an ODI in Hambantota on July 21.
