England opener Zak Crawley was ruled out of the first two test matches against India after sustaining a right wrist injury on his 23rd birthday.
Crawley has slipped on the marble floor of the England dressing room, thereby injuring his wrist. The first Test match begins on Friday.
“England top-order batsman Zak Crawley has been ruled out of the first two Tests of the India versus England series. The England medical team will continue to assess his progress over the next few weeks,” England and Wales Cricket Board said.
Crawley has 616 runs from 10 test matches, including one hundred and three fifties.
