Praveen Kumar ruled out of the Test series in Australia

India pacer Praveen Kumar was on Tuesday ruled out of the Test series in Australia due to a fractured rib that would take 5-6 weeks to heal.

“Praveen Kumar underwent a scan yesterday (28 Nov 2011) evening, and was found to have a fractured rib, as per the report that came through today,” a BCCI release said.

“He is expected to recover in 5-6 weeks, and has therefore been ruled out of the ODI series against the West Indies, as well as the Test series in Australia that follows.”

“His replacement for the Australia tour will be named on 5 December 2011, when the selectors meet in Ahmedabad to pick the Indian team for the last two ODIs against the West Indies.”
