Cuttack:

India have received an injury blow to pacer Varun Aaron, who suffered a muscle strain in his right leg during the ODI series opener against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

"Aaron has a right quadriceps muscle strain and we will take a call [on his fitness] after investigation," team manager told reporters after the home side's 169-run win over the visitors.

Aaron, who incidentally clocked 152kph in the first over, chatted with Kohli as the physio was called before the pacer was taken off after bowling 4.1 overs, conceding 26 runs. (Read: Runs Coming from Openers is a Good Sign, Says Dhawan)

Kohli though refused to comment on Aaron's availability for the next game. "Aaron struggled after the fourth over and I don't know the extent of his injury. I didn't want to take a chance and asked him to rest."
