Gambhir to miss third Test
August 02, 2010
The development means that Tamil Nadu batsman Murali Vijay will yet again open with Virender Sehwag in the match, starting tomorrow at the P Sara Oval here.
Vijay had scored a half-century in the first innings of the second Test.
In further bad news for India, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who missed yesterday's practice session, is also a doubtful starter, sources in the Indian team management said.
The team management insisted that the Punjab spinner is not injured and has a minor side strain.
Although he has hardly impressed in the Test series, his absence will compound India's problems as they strive to win the Test to draw the series.
