BCCI, Infosys in talks for an injury database

Mumbai:

Concerned over the spate of injuries to its top players, the cricket board is in talks with IT Major Infosys for preparing an exhaustive injury-database but the discussions are at a "very preliminary stage", BCCI stated on Monday.


"Anil Kumble (former India captain and current chairman of the National Cricket Academy) is in touch with Infosys to develop a software for injury management of players. But the talks are informal and at a very preliminary stage," said BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty.

"We have been using the infrastructure of Infosys like their ground at Mysore on a regular basis," Shetty added.

The spate of injuries to leading players has robbed the Indian team of the services of some key players during ongoing tour of the West Indies.

Regular openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, are out of action following shoulder injuries sustained ahead of the Caribbean tour.

Pacers Zaheer Khan and S Sreesanth were recently ruled out of the second half of the tour, involving a three-Test series, against the hosts because of injuries.

Zaheer, earlier rested for the T20 one-off tie and the five-match ODI series currently underway, has a right ankle problem while Sreesanth injured in his right elbow. Both the players will require some time off for rehabilitation.
