The Indian pace duo of Rudra Pratap Singh and S Sreesanth were on Saturday ruled out of the second Test against Pakistan due to injuries.

While R P Singh is nursing a thigh strain, Sreesanth has an injured shoulder.

"RP and Sreesanth have been ruled out for the second Test," BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah said.

The second Test will be played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, from November 30.
