Mumbai: Injured India fast bowler Shardul Thakur has ruled himself out of the T20I and two Tests against Australia as he has been advised seven weeks of complete rest.

The 27-year-old Thakur, who made his Test debut against the West Indies in Hyderabad on October 12, hobbled off the ground after bowling just 10 deliveries. He had suffered a right adductor tendon injury.

"Even if I try hard, I won’t be able to get fit before the second Test in Australia. A place in the T20s (which precede the Tests) or the Tests will be difficult. I will be eyeing the one-dayers instead. Let’s see how my rehab goes. I will continue with my training for the next seven weeks," Thakur was quoted as saying by Indian Express on Tuesday.

Before his Test debut, Thakur's Asia Cup was cut short by groin injury. He was sent home from UAE after playing only one match, against Hong Kong. However, the Mumbai paceman revealed that the injury in UAE was "different".

"The injury from the Asia Cup was different to this one. During the Test match, I felt like my muscle was torn off. I started limping and when Virat asked me what was wrong, I told him it felt like a tear," Thakur, who has played one Test, five ODIs and seven T20Is, said.

India will travel to Australia for three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs. The tour commences on November 21. First Test is from December 6 and the ODIs get underway on January 12, 2019.
