Bangalore: Left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra has been ruled out of the Test series against New Zealand starting early next month as he has not fully recovered from an ankle injury, physio Andrew Leipus confirmed here Tuesday.
Leipus however added Nehra may be back for the tri-series also involving Australia. “That’s the goal at the moment...One day cricket. But not Test matches,” Leipus said. Nehra has not played any competitive cricket since the World Cup .
Leipus, under whom Nehra is undergoing a rehabilitation programme, also said Virender Sehwag is doing quite well.
