Kolkata: The off-spinner was ruled out of the three-match T20I series against West Indies (IND vs WI T20) on Monday due to a strain in his leg. Washington recently made a successful comeback from injury during the three-match ODI series against the West Indies and was looking to continue his good run in the T20I series starting here on Wednesday. A seasoned official of the Indian Cricket Board said, “Washington has a strained leg muscle and that’s why he didn’t practice today.” It looks like he won’t be able to play the entire series of three T20 matches in just five days. Washington was out for a long time due to a hand injury during the tour of England and returned to competitive cricket with the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Washington was selected for the ODI series against South Africa but did not play in the series due to being found to be Covid-19 positive. Already out of the team due to injury and now Washington is also out and in such a situation, the team has only Yuzvendra Chahal left as the main spinner. Punjab’s left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar is likely to be included as a substitute as he travels with the team. Washington will now undergo rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy along with Axar and Lokesh Rahul.
