Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the India’s three-match T20I series against the West Indies that starts on Wednesday. The spin-allrounder didn’t turn up for the Indian team’s training at Eden Gardens on Monday and team sources confirmed that he would miss the series.

Kuldeep Yadav has been named as Washington’s replacement. All three matches of the series would be played in Kolkata, on February 16, 18 and 20.

Washington, who became a Rs 8.75-crore buy for Sunrisers Hyderabad at the IPL auction, has been plagued by injuries of late. A finger injury sustained in July last year had ruled him out of the T20 World Cup. He missed the South Africa tour after testing positive for Covid.

The Chennai-based Washington came back to competitive cricket in the Vijay Hazare Trophy after a long layoff.
