Indian trio ruled out of Asia Cup

Three Indian cricketers including star all-rounder Hardik Pandya were Thursday ruled out of the Asia Cup with injuries, dealing a blow to the side's chances in the 50-over tournament.

Pandya, 24, was suffering an acute lower back spasm during the game against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on Wednesday. He will be replaced by Deepak Chahar.

Left-arm spinner Axar Patel, who injured his left index finger, will be substituted by Ravindra Jadeja.

Siddhartha Kaul has been roped into the squad in place of right-arm pacer Shardul Thakur, who is nursing soreness in his hip and groin.
