Rajkot ODI: Injury worries for India, Lanka in ODI series opener

Dashing southpaw Yuvraj Singh might sit out of the first ODI match in Rajkot because of the injury he sustained on the little finger of his left-hand while fielding in the second T20 match in Mohali. Indian Captain MS Dhoni said in a press conference that Virat Kohli might play instead. Local boy Ravindra Jadeja is also being considered to be in the playing XI. India is without the services of S Sreesanth for the first two ODIs, as he is down with swine-flu. The return of Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Praveen Kumar and Harbhajan Singh, who were not part of the T20 team, has strengthened the hosts' batting and bowling line-up. Sachin Tendulkar is all set to become the first player to appear in 600 international games. For Sri Lanka, pacer Lasith Malinga is down with fever. Both the sides will decide their final XI only before the start today's match.India is currently second behind Australia in the ICC ODI ratings. They will need a clean sweep to reduce the gap to four ratings points to Australia's 130.
