Mumbai/UNI: KL Rahul, whose availability for the remaining three Tests was subject to fitness, has been ruled out of the third Test against England in Rajkot.

Rahul has reached 90 percent of match fitness and is progressing well under the supervision of the BCCI Medical Team.

"He will continue his recovery process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru to be completely match-fit for the fourth and fifth Test," BCCI said in a statement.

The Men’s Selection Committee named Devdutt Padikkal as Rahul's replacement for the third Test, starting February 15.

The five-match Test series is level at 1-1, with England winning the first Test in Hyderabad and India, the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Rahul had missed the second Test due to a quadricep injury, but the national selectors included him in the squad for the last three Tests only subject to a fitness clearance.

Team India: Rohit Sharma (C), Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Dhruv Jurel (WK), KS Bharat (WK), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja*, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Akash Deep, Devdutt Padikkal.
