Lahore:

Pakistan's bid to level the series against India received a big blow with veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan being ruled out of the crucial second Test starting on Monday. Moin is suffering from a groin injury and would be replaced by Kamran Akmal. "Moin is not fit and Akmal will play in his place in the Test," said Pakistan captain Inzamam-u Haq. The 22-year-old Akmal has played just four Tests and the Lahore match would be the first on home soil for the youngster. Moin, a former captain and veteran of 68 Tests and 205 ODIs, had not taken part in the nets yesterday and Akmal was called to keep wickets. India have taken a lead in the three match series with a victory at Multan. But the visitors are also plagued with their share of injury problems, with skipper Sourav Ganguly returning home with a back injury and Zaheer Khan been ruled out of the series. (PTI)
