Ishant, Rahane, Jadeja ruled out ahead of 2nd Test vs NZ

Mumbai: India’s Ishant Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja have been ruled out ahead of the second Test against New Zealand here at the Wankhede stadium on Friday.
Fast bowler Ishant dislocated his left little finger during the final day of the first Test match in Kanpur.
“The BCCI Medical team will continue to monitor his (Ishant) progress,” BCCI said in a release.
All-rounder Jadeja suffered a right forearm injury during the first game. Subsequently he underwent scans, which revealed a swelling on his forearm. The BCCI has advised him to rest and thus ruled him out of the second Test.
Meanwhile, Rahane, who led India in the first game, sustained a minor left hamstring strain while fielding on the final day in Kanpur.
“Since he has not recovered completely, he has been ruled out of the 2nd Test in Mumbai. His progress will be closely monitored by the BCCI Medical team,” BCCI said.
