He slipped as the grass was wet due to intermittent rain and fell across the painted outfield which has sponsor's logo with his right ankle hitting the surface.

Munaf grimaced with pain and was later taken off the field with his right ankle in bandage. He had already bowled four overs for 26 runs and did not come out to bowl again in the rain-curtailed match.

India has been hit hard by a spate of injuries in this disastrous tour of England with several players, including top guns Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh among them.
