New Delhi:

It's been a cruel twist of fate for India's fastest bowler Varun Aaron as he can now only watch his teammates play against the Aussies on television after being ruled out for the Test series.

"I have got a stress reaction in my back and that's why I won't be a part of the Test squad," a visibly disappointed Aaron told PTI over phone from his Pune residence, where he has recently shifted.

Aaron who made his Test debut against the West Indies in Mumbai last month, played in the first two ODIs against the visitors at Cuttack and Visakhapatnam.

"I have sustained this injury during the ODI series and I have now been advised complete rehabilitation," the 22-year-old who plays for Jharkhand in the domestic league informed.

"I will leave for Bangalore on Monday. I will now undergo complete rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in my bid to get completely fit."

Asked about the extent of his injury, Aaron said, "I don't know yet about what will be the duration of my rehabilitation but I believe it's nothing very serious."

Will he be able to get fit to be considered for selection before the Commonwealth Bank Series that starts in February, he was optimistic yet cautious, "I will definitely try to get fit by then."

Someone who came into national reckoning for his impressive performance during the Emerging Tour of Australia, it was indeed disappointing as India desperately need a few genuine quicks on the bouncy strips on offer Down Under.

"Obviously, it is disappointing as I was looking forward to this tour," said Aaron who is also down with cold.

Certainly not the best time to be a Varun Aaron.
