Mumbai: The touring Indian team's woes continued with medium pacer Javagal Srinath set to fly back home after a bone scan on his hand, done soon after the first Test against Sri Lanka at Galle, showed a fracture.Srinath will fly home immediately and there will be no replacement for him, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jaywant Lele said from Baroda over the telephone on Saturday.The injury looks pretty serious but as of now we have not named any replacement for him as there are 15 players (apart from Srinath) already in Sri Lanka, he added.Lele said there has been no news of another injured player V V S Laxman, who is being treated for knee problems in Australia.Lele was confident that all the injured Indian players would be fit for the tour of South Africa starting from October 1.
