Injured Ambati Rayudu ruled out of Zimbabwe tour

Indian cricket team suffered a major blow as in-form Ambati Rayudu ruled out of rest of the Zimbabwe tour due to injury.

Rajasthan Royals player Sanju Samson has been named as Rayudu's replacement for the rest of the tour.

The BCCI medical team confirms that Rayudu has been ruled out of the remaining part of the Zimbabwe tour due to an injury he has sustained while playing the 2nd ODI. Rayudu has pulled his right quadriceps muscles and will require 2 to 3 weeks of rehabilitation.

Rayudu showed top form in the two ODIs to have taken place so far, scoring 124 not out and 41 respectively.

The injury to him gives Samson an opportunity to make his India debut. The Kerala cricketer rose to prominence with his exploits for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. He has played 21 First-Class games, besides 29 List A matches and 67 T20s.

The third ODI will be played at the Harare Sports Club on Monday and will be followed by T20 Internationals on July 17 and July 19 at the same venue.
