Umesh Yadav ruled out of third Test

Indian pacer Umesh Yadav has been ruled out of the third Test against England due to a lower back injury.

Umesh had to miss the second Test against England in Mumbai due to the same problem.

He has been advised rest for at least 10 days, but he will join the Indian team at Kolkata as he will be monitored by physiotherapist Evan Speechley.

His injury is more serious than it was initially thought to be and even though there is a long break before the next Test starts, the Delhi seamer is not expected to recover.
