Kolkata: Senior-pro VVS Laxman, who is recuperating from a back injury, has pulled out of Hyderabad's upcoming Ranji fixture against Bengal beginning at Eden Gardens from Saturday.
"He is still recovering from the back injury. But he's not yet ruled out of the entire season. We may get his services with two more matches left (after Bengal)," media manager T Seshanarayan told PTI.
The retired India batsman pulled a back muscle during their tie against Madhya Pradesh in which he scored 120 as he played two of the five matches Hyderabad played in the group A league this season.
