Sport – Yuvraj Singh to miss Pakistan game

NEW DELHI: India’s bid to win the Champions Trophy got a big blow when Yuvraj Singh was ruled out of the first match against Pakistan due to a
finger injury. ( Watch Video )

Yuvraj was enthusiastically taking part in the fielding session at the University Ground. But in the process, he ended up hurting his right finger so badly that he couldn’t participate in the batting and bowling sessions which were conducted later in the day.

The left-hander was attended to by physio Nitin Patel before he proceeded for a medical examination.

Team manager Anurag Thakur said the medical examination would determine whether the middle-order batsman has suffered a fracture.

“The tests will show whether he has fractured his finger,” he said.

India are already an injury-hit side going into the tournament, missing the services of star opener Virender Sehwag, who is nursing a shoulder problem.

Sehwag’s fellow opener Gautam Gambhir was also nursing a groin strain ahead of the tournament. Gambhir did not play in the team’s only practice match against New Zealand.
