Langer out of second Test against WI

Sydney:

Australian opener Justin Langer has been ruled out of the second cricket Test against the West Indies beginning November 17 because a broken rib has not completely healed. Langer missed the first Test in Brisbane, a 379-run win by Australia, because of the rib injury sustained in a domestic first-class match the weekend before the Gabba Test. "It is disappointing to miss a Test match but I have to consider the best interests of the team and while I continue pushing so hard to be right, I am not allowing myself to heal," Langer said today. Australian all-rounder Shane Watson will also miss the second Test due to a dislocated shoulder. The second Test will be played in Hobart. Australia will name its team for the match later this week. The West Indies, meanwhile, play a tour match against Victoria state beginning Friday in Melbourne. (AP)
