He may have had a minor case of sore hands but India skipper MS Dhoni said on the eve of his team's first ODI match against England that it was nothing to get worked up about and that his team is ready for the battle ahead.

Dhoni sat out of the warm-up T20 match against Leicestershire on Monday but said that he and his team is ready for the T20 and the 50-over test ahead. "Injuries are part and parcel of the game. Some injuries are common to wicket-keepers in this part of the world but it is nothing much to worry about," he told reporters.

Dhoni was also wary of the injury-list in his team on the tour and said that the ball 'wobbling' in English conditions may contribute to certain dis-comfort for the bowlers but added that he did not fully understand why it was mainly limited to pacers in his side. He chose to specifically give the example of Ishant Sharma.
