Wellington:

India's pace sensation Ishant Sharma is likely to miss Tuesday's first one-dayer against New Zealand due to injury. The sinewy fast bowler had hurt his shoulder while fielding in the second Twenty20 international against New Zealand at the Westpac Stadium last night.

An MRI scan carried out on his shoulder on Saturday revealed a bruise.

The impact of falling on the ball is said to have aggravated an old injury.

"The MRI scan has disclosed that there is a bruise. We will watch him over the next two days. But it is likely that Ishant may miss the first ODI against New Zealand," said administrative manager Niranjan Shah, who is accompanying the Indian side.

The five-match one-day series will begin from March 3 with a floodlit contest at Napier.

Other ODIs:

Wellington (March 6)
Christchurch (March 8)
Hamilton (March 11)
Auckland (March 14)
