Zaheer Khan ruled out of tomorrow's second Test against England.

Indian bowler Zaheer Khan has been ruled out of the second Test against England at Trent Bridge.

Khan's absence tomorrow will be viewed as a boost for England, who lead the four-match series 1-0 after a 196-run advantage in last week's first Test.

Despite only bowling 13.3 overs in the first innings at Lord's, 32-year-old Khan took the wickets of both England openers and bowled eight maidens before pulling up with a hamstring injury.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni confirmed Khan would not be risked and is likely to be replaced by either Sreesanth or Munaf Patel for Friday's Test.
