Kanpur, Nov 23 (PTI) Senior India opener KL Rahul was on Tuesday ruled out of the first Test against New Zealand, starting Thursday, due to an injury. Suryakumar Yadav, who was a part of India"s Test squad that travelled to England, has been added to the side. "KL Rahul is not playing the first Test," a BCCI source told PTI. Rahul was missing from the Indian team"s customary practice session, attended by almost all the players on Tuesday at the Green Park stadium. The nature and extent of Rahul"s injury could not be confirmed. Shubman Gill was seen opening the batting along with Mayank Agarwal during the team"s net session as Cheteshwar Pujara, the vice captain for the series-opener, also batted.
