Zaheer Khan has been ruled out of the rest of the series against England, that includes a further two Test matches and five ODIs that he could have played. The reason behind this is a new ankle injury to go with his hamstring issue.
Interestingly, on the first day of the first Test match against the English side, Zaheer Khan had suffered from a hamstring injury and quite laughably the Indian management had announced that Zaheer would be fit to play in the second innings of the first Test match.
Now it is revealed that he will miss the entire series, forget playing in the first game.
This will mean that the side will now be handicapped and will struggle through the third Test match as well.
The bigger question is that is the Indian team’s media and fitness management so appalling that they cannot for one, diagnose the ailment and secondly pass on the right information to the fans?
This is nothing short of taking the fans for granted, just like the pair of Ravi Shastri and Sunil Gavaskar have often taken their fans for granted. Time for everything to change.
