Rishabh Pant ruled out of Indian ODI squad amid criticisms over his performance

Rishabh Pant ruled out of Indian ODI squad amid criticisms over his performance

Dhaka: According to the statement released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Rishabh Pant was ruled out from the ODI squad of Indian men's cricket team for the series against Bangladesh.

Though the statement suggests that he was released after consultation with the board's medical staff and that no replacements will be sought by the team in his absence, specific details on why the lefthander will not take part in the series is not mentioned in it.

The BCCI added that Pant is expected to link up with the team ahead of the two-match Test series in Bangladesh starting from December 14 in Chattogram.

The absence of Pant means KL Rahul will keep wickets for India in the first ODI at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Mirpur, Dhaka, on Sunday.

BCCI also said that left-arm spin all-rounder Axar Patel was not available for selection for the first ODI, without revealing the specific nature of the injury to him though skipper Rohit Sharma had said at the toss that there have been a few injury issues in the team.

Earlier, on Saturday, tearaway fast bowler Umran Malik was named as a replacement for injured senior pacer Mohammed Shami in India's ODI squad for the series against Bangladesh. A statement from the BCCI said Shami sustained a shoulder injury during a training session in the lead up to the ODI series against Bangladesh.

Previously, left-arm spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and uncapped pacer Yash Dayal were ruled out of ODIs against Bangladesh. Jadeja is still undergoing recovery post a knee surgery in September, leaving his participation for the Tests in doubt while Dayal has a lower back issue.

After the three ODIs, India will play two Tests against Bangladesh under the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) cycle. The first Test will happen at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chattogram from December 14 to 18, followed by the second Test at the Sher-E-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS), Mirpur, Dhaka from December 22-26.
