Jhulan Goswami ruled out of sa T20 series

| | Potchefstroom

A heel injury has forced veteran India pacer Jhulan Goswami to withdraw from the five-match women's T20 series against South Africa, starting here on Tuesday.

"Goswami suffered a heel injury and underwent an MRI scan on Monday," said the BCCI in a statement. "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," it added.

Goswami picked up five wickets in the preceding three-match ODI series.
