Sri Lanka's star off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was on Monday rushed to a city hospital for medical examination after he complained of pain in his finger, hospital sources said.

Muralitharan, who did not take part in the team's practice session on Monday morning, was rushed to the Sterling Hospital where Dr Samrat Buddh conducted various medical tests including X-rays and CT scan of his finger, Medical Director of the hospital Dr Kamal Parikh said.

Parikh said the injury was not serious and the veteran spinner has been given pain relief injection.
