Ashish Nehra has been named as Zaheer Khan's replacement for the remainder of the Test series in Pakistan. Zaheer played the first Test, at Multan, but bowled only one over on the fourth day before retiring hurt with a hamstring injury in his right leg.

Nehra had been part of the Indian one-day squad, but was forced to pull out after tearing the webbing on his left hand during the second ODI.

India will almost certainly go in with three seamers in the second Test, which starts on April 5 at Lahore. With Irfan Pathan and Lakshmipathy Balaji sure to play, Agarkar and Nehra will fight it out for the third seamer's spot.
