Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh have been ruled out of the remainder of the England Test series on account of injuries sustained during the second Test at Trent Bridge. Virat Kohli and Pragyan Ojha have been called up as their respective replacements ahead of the third Test at Edgbaston.
Yuvraj fractured his left index finger on the fourth day at Trent Bridge, while facing up to a bouncer from Tim Bresnan, and the injury is expected to take four weeks to heal. Harbhajan has a Grade I abdominal muscle strain, which curtailed his role as a bowler in the Test match to just 13.4 overs. His absence during England's second innings increased the workload of India's seam attack. He's also been in poor form, managing only two wickets in the first two Tests.
