Australia vs India, 2020-21 - Umesh Yadav ruled out of


He had limped off the field during the second Test at the MCG

Umesh Yadav has been ruled out of India’s last two Tests against Australia with a strained calf muscle, ESPNcricinfo has confirmed. Replacements for both Yadav and Mohammed Shami, who got injured in the first Test, are expected to be named shortly.

Yadav’s withdrawal adds to a growing list of absentees for India, who came into the tour without Ishant Sharma, lost Shami to an arm fracture, and are without Virat Kohli for the last three Tests of the four-match series. They came to Australia without Rohit Sharma too, but the opener has since rejoined the squad after his two-week quarantine and is available for selection for the third Test.

Yadav had walked off with a strain in the middle of his fourth over on the third day of the MCG Test, and took no further part in that game, having gone for scans immediately. India had already handed a debut to Mohammed Siraj in that game, and might have been left thin in the bowling department if not for Ravindra Jadeja’s return to the XI following injury concerns of his own.
