Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has pulled from the Test series against Sri Lanka due to his marriage, which will be held later this week.
 
Opener Shikhar Dhawan has also been released from India's Test squad on personal grounds.
 
Dhawan will be available for selection for the third Test, which starts from December 2 in Delhi.
 
Tamil Nadu allrounder Vijay Shankar has been picked as Bhuvneshwar's replacement.
 
The board said the two players had requested the selectors and the team management to allow their release.
 
Shankar, a middle-order batsman who also bowls medium-pace, has been a part of the India A side in 2015, and more recently on the tour of South Africa and the home series against New Zealand A.
 
India squad for the second Test:
Virat Kohli (capt), KL Rahul, M Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vice-capt), Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Vijay Shankar.
