April 30, 2011 21:53 IST

Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne is uncertain for his side's crucial Indian Premier League match against Pune Warriors India in Jaipur on Sunday as he is nursing a swollen knee.

The legendary Australian spinner was seen gauging the strength of his knees during Saturday's practice session.

"Yes it is still swollen. Cartilage of my left knee is inflamed. There is swelling and I will have another look at it in the morning," Warne said.

shane warneWarne hurt his knee while fielding in their seven-wicket win over table toppers Mumbai Indians in Jaipur on Friday but hoped that he will be fit to play Pune.

"My knee got stuck when I dived for the ball while fielding yesterday. I have had three operations on that knee. I have been icing it and I will use more ice packs. Hope I can be fit for the match against Pune," he had said.

Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ashok Menaria, however, dispelled any fears about Warne's participation in Sunday's match.

"There is nothing wrong with Shane (Warne) and he is out for the practice," Meenaria said when asked about his skipper's injured knee.

Sources also said that Warne would be playing against Pune even if he is less than hundred percent fit.
