New Delhi:

Some more bad news for the cricket fans as Yuvraj Singh, India's man of the World Cup, on Friday has been ruled out of the entire tour of the West Indies.

He will miss the tour due to a lung infection.

"He is suffering from an upper respiratory infection, with a small patch of pneumonitis in the left lung," N Srinivasan, BCCI Secretary, said in a statement.

With his exclusion, India will play the ODI series against the Windies without six seniors - MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, who has also been ruled out of the entire tour due to a shoulder injury.

Manoj Tiwary and Shikhar Dhawan have been included as Yuvraj and Gambhir's replacement in the ODI team which will be led by Suresh Raina. Harbhajan Singh will be his deputy.
