India fast bowlers Shantha Sreesanth and Rudra Pratap Singh have been ruled out of the first Test against Pakistan, which starts in Delhi on Thursday.
Sreesanth is nursing a shoulder injury, while Singh is struggling with a side strain. Munaf Patel has been called up as a replacement.
Zaheer Khan and Munaf are the only two fast bowlers in India's squad for the first match of the three-Test series.
However, there was some good news for India - wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is recovering well from his ankle knock and should be fit for the series-opener.
