Team India suffered an early injury scare before their quest to reclaim the trophy after 8 years. Vijay Shankar was hit on his right arm in the nets which put his availability for the World Cup in question.

However, much to the relief of the Men In Blue, the injury suffered by Shankar was only minor. The scans showed that there was no fracture and Shankar should be available for selection ahead of India’s opener against South Africa in Southampton.

A team spokesperson had a statement regarding the situation surrounding the player. He said:

“He was taken for scans on Friday and we can confirm that he has not suffered any fracture. His injury is being monitored,”

As a result of the blow, the 28-year-old all-rounder missed the first warm-up fixture against New Zealand. The management was planning to try out Vijay Shankar in the much talked about No.4 position for the match. In his absence, KL Rahul was awarded the spot, who could only manage a return of 6 runs.
