Yuvraj Singh was seen limping to the team bus after practice. Having just regained his touch with a blistering 60 against Australia, the injury, if serious, could be a setback for India ahead of the semifinal against South Africa on Friday.

Yuvraj twisted his ankle while playing football barefoot and lying near the opposition penalty area for sometime before continuing with the game.

He even had a slight altercation with Virat Kohli after that following a tackle by the Delhi batsman. Kohli then walked up to coach Duncan Fletcher and complained. But the match went on. When asked about the extent of the injury, physio Nitin Patel, said: "You know I will not talk to you."

In 2006, Yuvraj suffered serious knee injury while playing kho-kho in Mohali.
