Australia suffered an injury scare on Thursday as Marcus Stoinis pulled up his muscle while bowling against India at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

In the 11.5 over of the Indian innings, Stoinis ran up to bowl to Ajinkya Rahane and just before jumping into his delivery stride, he was seen holding his right thigh. While his team-mates and the physio rushed to inquire if things were alright, Stoinis was seen limping off the ground. The last ball of that over had to be completed by Aaron Finch. Stoinis returned to the field later.
