He took a day's break from training after being hit by a local bowler in the nets last Friday, but is expected to return to Bangalore and join his teammates on Wednesday.

Virender SehwagThough the injury is not serious, the dashing batsman is not taking any chances keeping in mind the upcoming matches in the World Cup.

Sehwag's fitness, of late, is cause for concern for the team management.

The batsman, who hurt his left knee while attempting a cut shot in the first match against Bangladesh in Mirpur, is also carrying a mild shoulder injury that has prevented him from bowling.

He scored 35 in Sunday's dramatic tie against England and was there in the field for the entire duration.

India's next match is against Ireland in Bangalore on March 6.
