Indian skipper Sourav Gangulyon Sundayconsulted doctors for a muscle pull in the groin which prevented him from coming to the ground when India fielded against New Zealand in the tri-series match at Hyderabad on Saturday night.

Ganguly, who had missed the second Test against New Zealand as also the first four matches of the tri-series after undergoing two surgical procedures for a painful abscess on the left thigh, pulled the muscle while batting in last night's game.

"We are now examining him," a doctor, attending on Ganguly at the latter's residence, told PTI over phone.

Ganguly, who was in visible pain, scored a quick-fire 33 of 31 balls, but had to play with a runner in the latter part of his innings.
