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.
