Chawla to miss series

Piyush Chawla, the teenage sensation from India, has been ruled out of the 7 match ODI series against Australia because of an ankle injury picked up at training. The leg-spinner opened many eyes during the recently concluded tour of England, but will be unable to make further good impressions as he sits on the sidelines while the Australians visit.

BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said that Chawla had been advised to rest for 6 weeks in order to fully recovery from his injury. “We will decide on a replacement in a day or two” Shah told reporters. Chawla was one of three spinners named in India’s 15 man squad for the first three games.
