RAJKOT, India: India batter KL Rahul was ruled out of the third test against England and replaced in the squad by Devdutt Padikkal on Monday.

The absence of Rahul is another blow to India, whose batting lineup is also missing superstar Virat Kohli because of personal reasons.

Rahul missed the second test, won by India by 106 runs last week to bring the series level at 1-1, because of a quadriceps injury. India said Rahul “reached 90% of match fitness” and was progressing well in his bid to be fit for the fourth and fifth tests.

The third test in Rajkot starts Thursday.
