India pacer Ishant Sharma is all set to miss the second Test in Christchurch beginning tomorrow due to an ankle injury. According to reports, Sharma suffered pain in his right ankle on the eve of the second Test and didn't take part in the practice session.

The pain goes back to the ankle injury he suffered during his Ranji Trophy game recently for Delhi. In Sharma's absence, Umesh Yadav is set to be called in as a replacement in the playing XI. Sharma took a five-for in the first Test and looked like the only bowler who troubled the Kiwis. Yadav had an extended bowling session under the guidance of head coach Ravi Shastri and bowling coach Bharat Arun.
