An injury-hit Royal Challengers Bangalore side endured yet another blow on Monday when batsman Sarfaraz Khan hurt himself during a practice game at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The 19-year-old slid as he chased the ball in the field, and immediately appeared to be in pain. He had to be stretchered off.

A few minutes later, however, Sarfaraz was able to limp back to the dressing room. The youngster is likely to miss the IPL, team officials said.
