India pacer Jhulan Goswami has been ruled out of the women's Twenty20 International (T20I) series against South Africa due to a heel injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Tuesday. "After an MRI scan on Monday, 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", the release said.
The 35-year-old will consult a foot expert and will undergo her rehab process at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.
The injury comes after Jhulan became the first woman to take 200 wickets in One-Day Internationals (ODIs). In 60 T20Is, she has taken 66 wickets.
The first of the five T20Is will take place later on Tuesday at Potchefstroom.
