Bengaluru, February 13: Veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami has been ruled out of the T20I series against South Africa women.
Goswami suffered a heel injury and underwent an MRI scan on Monday (February 12) and she will now return to India. The BCCI is yet to name a replacement for her.
The BCCI medical team in consultation with a local doctor felt that she needs rest for a couple of weeks to avoid any further impact on the bone.
Upon her return, Goswami will consult a foot expert and will undergo her rehab process at the NCA in Bengaluru.
Goswami had recently completed 200 wickets, the first woman to do so, in the ODIs and played a good role in India's 2-1 series win over South Africa.
