Zaheer Khan out for 14-16 weeks

India's hopes in England were dealt a severe blow when Royal Challengers speedster Zaheer Khan was ruled out for a period of atleast 14 weeks due to injuries.

According to the team management, an injury in his right ankle which will require surgery has been discovered. Along with his chronic hamstring problem, 33 year old Zaheer's rehabilitation could take a minimum of 14-16 weeks from his surgery.

India's hopes in England were dealt a severe blow when Royal Challengers speedster Zaheer Khan was ruled out for a period of atleast 14 weeks due to injuries.

Zaheer pulled out during the first innings of the first test at Lord's with an injury. He was expected to bowl in the second innings of the first test but he didn't. He also missed the second test at Trent Bridge as India crashed 0-2 in the series. He was scheduled to return in the practice game against Northants on 5th and 6th August but he bowled just 3 overs with a shortened run up before leaving the field for the remainder of the innings.

According to the team management, an injury in his right ankle which will require surgery has been discovered. Along with his chronic hamstring problem, 33 year old Zaheer's rehabilitation could take a minimum of 14-16 weeks from his surgery. This throws him out of the reckoning for the West Indies tour of India, Eng's ODI series against India in India, the Champions League T20 and possibly even India's tour of Australia.

He will be replaced for the remainder of the England series by RP Singh who last played tests for India in 2008 and ODIs in 2009.
