Wellington:

Indian paceman Ishant Sharma's participation in next week's one-day series against New Zealand will be known only after a thorough assessment of his sore right shoulder done by the team physio.

The sinewy right arm fast bowler sustained the injury when he threw himself at the ball in the second Twenty20 international at the Westpac stadium here. He aggravated it by bowling two overs as India strove to stop the marauding Kiwis in their tracks.

The gravity of the injury has not been assessed as yet, but the team management was hopeful that Ishant should regain fitness ahead of the ODI series, which gets under way at Napier on March 3.

"We don't know the extent of injury. We will issue a statement after the doctor's assessment," India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said.
