Virat Kohli, who was to anyway take back captaincy duties was a like-for-like replacement. Two more players - Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja were also ruled out due to injuries. While Ishant dislocated his left little finger during Day 5 of the 1st Test, Jadeja suffered a right forearm injury during the same match.
