“The All-India Senior Selection Committee named Shahbaz Ahmed as the replacement for Washington Sundar for the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. Washington Sundar injured his shoulder while playing a County game in England. He has been ruled out of the Zimbabwe tour,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Washington Sundar was sent to England to play in County Championship and Royal London Cup to get match fitness before India call-up. However, as the fate would have it, he has suffered his fourth injury in the last 12 months. He also missed the South Africa tour after testing positive for Covid-19.

“Yes, Washington Sundar is ruled out of the Zimbabwe series. He has suffered an injury on his left shoulder while fielding during the Royal London Cup game between Lancashire and Worcestershire at Old Trafford. He will have to undergo rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy,” a senior BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
