Yuvi doubtful for the series opener

Rajkot: India batsman Yuvraj Singh's finger injury has rendered him doubtful for the first one-dayer against Sri Lanka and a final decision on his availability would be taken on Monday.

Yuvraj, the star of the second Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka where he scored a breathtaking 25 ball 60 to help India win, picked-up a fracture in his left hand while fielding in the match.

Saurashtra Cricket Association president Niranjan Shah said on Sunday that the team management would take a decision on Yuvraj after going through the report submitted by the orthopedic surgeon.

"The Indian Team management will take a final decision on Monday whether Yuvraj would play or not, after looking at the report submitted by the orthopedic surgeon," sources said

The former BCCI secretary, however, declined to comment further on the doctor's report.

Yuvraj was taken to Dr Dinkar Virparia's clinic late in the evening for check-up after the left-hander complained of pain in his finger.

Later he was taken to the Rajkot Imaging Centre where an X-ray of his finger was taken.

Earlier in the day, India and Sri Lanka teams arrived here for the first one-day international of the five-match series, beginning on Tuesday.

The teams arrived here on a chartered plane amidst tight security.
