Learning a lesson from the freak injury to key batsman Yuvraj Singh, Chief Selector Dilip Vengsarkar has asked the Indian team management to avoid playing games like

kho-kho

during practice sessions ahead of important matches.

Yuvraj sustained a knee ligament tear ahead of India's ICC Champions Trophy match against Australia on October 29 and missed the crucial tie.

"Kho-kho involves a lot of twisting and turning and can lead to injuries. I have spoken to the team management about this," Vengsarkar said.

The star batsman, who has been ruled out of action for at least six weeks, will miss India's one-day series on their tour of South Africa starting November 13.
