New Delhi:

Indian skipper Anil Kumble on Friday injured the little finger of his left hand while fielding and was rushed to hospital on the third day of the on-going third Test against Australia.

Kumble sustained the injury when he dived in an attempt to catch Matthew Hayden off Amit Mishra.

He was fielding at short mid-wicket in the 53rd over of the Australian innings but ended up suffering a half-inch deep cut on his little finger.

"Kumble has been rushed to Apollo hospital where he will be given stitches," according to team sources.
