Munaf was taken to a local hospital for a precautioary x-ray, which revealed a bruise on the wrist.
"There is no fracture. And there is no cause for concern," Indian media manager Rajan Nair told newspersons after the match.

Munaf got the wicket of Chris Gayle and finished with figures of 8-2-29-1.
