Team India women's spearhead Jhulan Goswami has been ruled out of the five-match T20I series against South Africa as a heel injury has forced the veteran to withdraw from the series. Goswami played a major role in helping the Women in Blue clinching the three-match ODI series where they won 2-1.
"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.
She did not feature in the third and final ODI after India had already secured the series. During the second ODI, she became the first female cricketer to take 200 ODI wickets.
