Bangalore: Indian captain Anil Kumble is not likely to bowl during Australia's second innings as he is suffering from a shoulder injury. He will probably miss the second Test starting from October 17 in Mohali. In fact there is a slim chance that he might be ruled out of the rest of the series.

Kumble, who usually bats at No. 8, dropped himself down the order to No. 10 after taking painkilling injections on Saturday, but didn't take the field when India came out to bowl.

Kumble had to take painkilling injections on Saturday night after he complained of pain in his shoulder. With Kumble approaching the end of his career this injury may just be another dampener. On what is a turning track, this injury could affect India badly as it may leave them with just one specialist spinner, Harbhajan Singh.
