The pacer needed the help of the physio to laboriously walk back to the dugout.

With the World Cup a couple of months away, this will keep the Indian team on the tenterhooks. He also did not come out to bat later in the evening.

The Mumbai Indians team management, however, said that the pacer is recovering well. He will, however, be assessed further on Monday and the future course of action will be decided accordingly.
