New Delhi, Feb 28: India A captain and veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been ruled out of the upcoming Paytm Prof D.B. Deodhar Trophy to be held in Dharamsala due to an injury.
"Ashwin has a niggling issue and the BCCI Medical Team has advised him a week's rest," the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a statement on Wednesday.
Jharkhand left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem has been named as Ashwin's replacement in the squad to be led by Ankit Bawne as captain of the India A team.
The selectors have suggested that Akashdeep Nath will move to the India B squad to facilitate the change.
