Down 0-2 in the series, India’s injury woes increased on Wednesday with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh being ruled out of the third Test against England due to an abdominal strain.
Harbhajan, who has really struggled to find form in the series so far, picked up the injury during the second Test at Trent Bridge.
“Harbhajan has a grade one lower abdominal tear and is expected to be out of action for 10-12 days,” ESPN Cricinfo reported.
The off-spinner bowled just 13.4 overs in the second Test and has been woefully out of form in the series. The feisty tweaker grabbed 1 for 69 in the second Test after his 1 for 218 in the first at Lord’s. In his absence, leg-spinner Amit Mishra might get a chance. Hindu
