Washington Sundar Injured Before India VS Zimbabwe: 

Washington Sundar, a player who often has an injury concern, is going to miss out on another series due to a shoulder injury. Washington has been an asset to the Indian team, whenever he has been fit and available. But his absence has made way for many other bowlers. It was last year that Ravichandran Ashwin got a surprise call-up in the absence of Washi to play for the ICC T20 World Cup in UAE. This time around as well, it is Shahbaz Ahmed, who happens to be the lucky one.

This left-arm spinner from Bengal is a true asset to any team that he plays for. He is a Jadeja-like player. He can bat, he can bowl and he is a gun on the field. Coming in from Bengal, he has done decently well for the state team and in the IPL as well. The RCB management has been backing this youngster for the past two seasons. He has match-winning abilities. If effectively backed and he remains fit, he can win games for team India too. With the support and guidance of Virat Kohli, Ahmed has been growing.
