India suffered a huge blow as star opening batsman Gautam Gambhir was ruled out of the series due to a groin injury.

Gambhir has been advised to rest for ten days and is returning from Sri Lanka ahead of the tri-series.

Selection Committee has announced Virat Kohli as Gambhir's replacement in the tri-series.

Gambhir's return means India will be without both their regular openers since Virender Sehwag is already out of action since he is recovering from a shoulder surgery.

The series in Sri Lanka, which also involves New Zealand, will be held from September 8 to 14.
