A side strain sustained in the Indian Premier League has rendered S Sreesanth doubtful for the tri-series in Bangladesh and the spunky pacer was on Friday advised to see the medical team at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said in a statement that Sreesanth sustained the injury during the May 28 Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals match at Mohali.
"Sreesanth has got a left side strain from the last IPL game at Mohali. This is confirmed by MRI scans and currently he still has some effusion in the region. Sreesanth is planned to join the Indian team for the Bangladesh tour tomorrow," Shah said in the release.
The medical team at the NCA is now in Bangalore assessing the pacer.
"At present, he looks doubtful for the Bangladesh tour. His availability for the Bangladesh tour will be decided after his assessment at the NCA," Shah said.
