Indian team is preparing to take on England in Bangalore this Sunday in their second match of the ongoing World Cup Cricket 2011. Today morning news surfaced in the Indian media suggest an injury for in-form Indian opener Virender Sehwag who played a magnificent innings of 175 runs in the opening match against Bangladesh. It appeared as a big cause of concern for the Indian cricket fans.
However, a BCCI press release, made public later on the day, assured Indian fans of Sehwag’s fitness. It reveals that Sehwag took a hit on his left ribcage while batting in the nets at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday morning, but the injury was nothing serious and the player is now fit to play on Sunday.
This would really come as a big relief for the Indian supporters who are just expecting the hard-hitting opener to build on his innings against Bangladesh in the coming matches of the tournament. India is thought to be one of the hot favorites to the World Cup this time and Virender Sehwag is a vital member on this mission.
