India loses paceman

India paceman Shantha Sreesanth has been ruled out of his side's upcoming second Test against the West Indies due to a heel injury.

Team physiotherapist John Gloster told Agence France-Presse the injured bowler would need three to five days to overcome his complaint.

"Sreesanth pulled up sore in the left heel at the end of the last Test match," he said.

"He has got an inflamed bursar at the back of the heel. We saw a specialist, and he gave him an injection in that heel. The specialist is confident it will settle down reasonably quickly, but at this stage, we are going to give him three to five days of rest.

"We will then work him back to full fitness after this."

Sreesanth bowled the final over of the drawn opening Test at Antigua when tail-ender Corey Collymore managed to survive the six deliveries to see out the match.
