Mumbai: Just 2-days before the start of the ODI series against Australia, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday hurt his left knee while batting in a practice session but is hoping the injury is not serious.
During an extended practice session at the Reliance Stadium Dhoni was hit on the backside of the left knee while batting at the nets against paceman Munaf Patel and had to leave the session mid-way to take rest.
"I got hit when batting against Munaf. I should be alright tomorrow, but have to wait and see how it feels in the morning," Dhoni, wearing a protective gear on the affected portion said.

Dhoni is the lone regular stumper in the Indian side named for the first two matches of the seven-match rubber, starting on Sunday.
The Indian team, which had assembled in Mumbai on October 20 and practiced there for three days, had a three-hour session here this afternoon after arriving in the morning.
