5:48 am on 4 August 2011

There's been more bad news for the Indian cricketers on tour in England.

Their off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and all rounder Yuvraj Singh have been ruled out of the remaining two Tests of the four-match series against England because of injuries.

Yuvraj has broken his left index finger and Harbhajan has an abdominal muscle strain, and they'll be replaced by Virat Kohli and Pragyan Ojha.

The dashing opening batsman Virender Sehwag has recovered from a shoulder injury and has rejoined the squad ahead of the third test starting in Birmingham next Wednesday.
