Uncertainty prevailed on Thursday about who would lead the Indian cricket team in West Indies following injury to Gautam Gambhir who found himself in the midst of a controversy for playing in the cash-rich IPL at the cost of national duty.

As the injury issue sparked off a blame game between the franchise and the Cricket Board, the BCCI said that it was assessing the medical reports on Gambhir and a final decision will be taken by tonight or tomorrow.

Gambhir, who was named the captain for the ODI series in West Indies, has aggravated his shoulder injury during the IPL and Kolkata Knight Riders physio Andrew Leipus said he would need four to six weeks to recover fully.

In case Gambhir is ruled out of the West Indies series, young Suresh Raina is likely to be named the captain.
