Rohit Sharma doubtful for ODI series

india Updated: Sep 03, 2011 20:48 IST

India's injury woes refused to end as young batsman Rohit Sharma on Saturday suffered a fracture in the index finger of his right hand, virtually ruling him out of the entire one-day series against England.

Sharma was hit by a Stuart Broad delivery in the 38th over of the Indian innings during the first ODI.

Sharma did not bat in the innings after facing that ball.

He went for a check up and a fracture was confirmed though no official word has come from the BCCI yet on his availability for the series.

It has been a disastrous tour for India as many leading players, including Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma and Yuvraj Singh suffered injuries at various stages of the tour.

Tendulkar had to miss today's five-match series-opener due a toe injury.
