The BCCI announced a revised squad for India’s tour of Bangladesh, scheduled next month after ace all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Yash Dayal were ruled out owing to injuries.
The BCCI named fast bowler Kuldeep Sen and all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed as replacements for Dayal and Jadeja respectively.
The BCCI press release stated that Dayal has a lower back issue and is ruled out of the series while Jadeja is yet to recover from his knee injury and will continue to be under the supervision of the BCCI Medical team.
