Indian all-rounder Vijay Shankar was hit on his right hand as he tried to pull a short-pitched ball from Khaleel Ahmed during a practice session on Friday. He left the batting session mid-way and headed back to the dressing room.

As per the ESPNcricinfo report, Vijay was facing Khaleel in the nets, who is among the four players sent to UK as net bowlers, and played a pull shot which did not come off well. The ball hit him on the right hand and Shankar rushed back to the changing rooms immediately. The official statement from BCCI over his injury is still awaited.
