Zaheer Khan dropped from 2nd test against England
Indian star left arm bowler Zaheer Khan has been dropped from 2nd test against England at at Trent Bridge due to some injury.Indian team captain MS Dhoni said about Zaheer Khan’s injury that,
Left-arm quick Zaheer broke down in the first Test at Lord’s, which India lost by 196 runs, after taking two wickets for 18 runs in 13.3 first innings overs and didn’t bowl again in the match.
The 32-year-old was instrumental in India’s seven-wicket win in the corresponding Trent Bridge Test against England four years ago, taking nine wickets for 134 runs in the match.
Now his place is set to go to either fast bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth or seamer Munaf Patel.
India also have a doubt over opening batsman Gautam Gambhir, who suffered an elbow injury when hit fielding at short leg at Lord’s.
If he were ruled out, Rahul Dravid, as happened in the second innings at Lord’s, would be promoted to open the innings with Yuvraj Singh in line to take Gambhir’s place in the team.
