Pandya, Axar and Thakur out of Asia Cup

20 September 2018 11:56

Hardik Pandya will miss the rest of the Asia Cup due to a back injury and India must also do without Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur for the remainder of the tournament.

Pandya was taken off on a stretcher after suffering an acute lower back spasm while bowling in a crushing eight-wicket win over fierce rivals Pakistan in Dubai on Wednesday.

The all-rounder is undergoing treatment and will continue to be assessed by the BCCI medical team, with Deepak Chahar replacing him in the squad.

Spinner Axar tore a tendon in his left index finger while fielding against Sarfraz Ahmed's side, so Ravindra Jadeja comes in to take his place.

Siddharth Kaul has been drafted in as a result of the hip and groin soreness which will prevent paceman Thakur from playing any further part in the competition.

India qualified for the Super Four stage after topping Group A with two wins out of two.
