Rohit Sharma was facing the team's throwdown expert S Raghu as a part of the regular practice drills. During the session, a short ball suddenly jumped off the length area and struck the Indian captain on his right forearm.

Sharma, who was attempting his signature pull shot missed the ball and that is when the injury happened. He seemed to be in excruciating pain and discontinued the net session instantly.

Nonetheless, after applying ice pack and resting a bit, Sharma did resume training. But, he only resorted to playing defensive shots in order to check whether his hand movement was fine as he was advised not to take too much strain while training.

Meanwhile, the extent of the injury is still unknown. Rohit Sharma will be assessed by the Indian medical team, which will provide clarity on the matter.

It now remains to be seen whether the impact of the injury will be forcing him to miss the semis clash against England or he would recover just in time before the knockout clash. India would be hoping that nothing untoward happens as they take on the English side.

This will be the first-ever World Cup knockout clash between India and England after 35 years. The last time it happened was during the 1987 World Cup semifinal at the Wankhede Stadium.
