Another blow to India on their injury-ravaged tour of England? Very likely. Because if reports are to be believed their best bowler on the tour is injured.

Reports suggest seamer Praveen Kumar is doubtful for the 5th and final ODI vs England later today. Praveen apparently twisted his ankle in a warmup football session on Thursday and was seen hobbling to the team bus.

Team management has said that a final call on Praveen's fitness will be taken before the start of the game on Friday.    

During the Test series as well, Praveen had trouble with his ankle that had forced him to sit out of the last Test.

If reports of Praveen's injury are confirmed then that will make it a total of 9 players who have been hurt during this 2 month long tour.

Sachin-Toe Injury
Zaheer-Hamstring injury   
Sehwag-Shoulder Injury
Gambhir-Concussion
Harbhajan-Abdominal injury   
Yuvraj-Broken Finger   
Ishant-ligament injury
Rohit Sharma- fractured his right index finger.
