"Absolutely yes (had gone for an MRI). I haven't got the report. I still need to speak to the physio I have not spoken to him, will speak to him once I reach the dressing room since he never wanted to discuss with me before the game. I will go and discuss with him now," said Gambhir after the Knight Riders were beaten by four wickets by Mumbai Indians in the IPL Eliminator.

Gambhir said he had hurt the right shoulder while making a sliding stop in the previous game.
