India’s main spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and batsman Rohit Sharma are ruled out of the Perth test due to injury.
Rohit affected his lower back while fielding in Adelaide Test while left-sided abdominal strain will keep Ashwin out of the game.
Note: Prithvi Shaw too continues to recover.
Earlier, India had named 13 member squad for the second Test.
It seems likely that Ravindra Jadeja will replace R Ashwin while the youngster Hanuma Vihari could get a chance on foreign soil. Jasprit Bumrah might also come in as the venue offers help to the Pacers.
BCCI has said they will provide details for the third test later.
