Batsman Suryakumar Yadav and fast bowler Deepak Chahar were on Wednesday ruled out of India’s three-match Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka because of injuries.

India, led by new all-format skipper Rohit Sharma, will play the opening Twenty20 international in Lucknow on Thursday followed by two matches in Dharamsala.

Yadav, who scored 107 runs to be named man of the series in India’s 3-0 Twenty20 sweep of the West Indies, suffered a hairline fracture to his hand while fielding in the final match in Kolkata.

Chahar injured his thigh while bowling in the same match.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India said the “two will head to the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore for further management of their injuries”.
