He neither fielded during the second day nor he came out to bat and later left for Bengaluru.

Shaw was named in both India A squads for the upcoming New Zealand tour. The team is set to leave on 10 January.

"He has been called to NCA. Mumbai Cricket Association got an email from the BCCI. He has left for Bengaluru. He couldn't even lift his hand. He has a tear in the shoulder. That much is known," said Ajinkya Naik, Mumbai team's manager.

"He was not in a position to bat. How serious is the injury will be known at the NCA," Naik added.

Shaw had underwent an MRI scan in presence of Mumbai's physio on Friday.

Karnataka resumed their innings on their overnight score of 79 for three and were eventually bundled out for 218, taking a first-innings lead of 24 runs.

Test specialist Ajinkya Rahane opened the Mumbai innings in Shaw's place.

In the tournament opener against Baroda, the 20-year-old scored 66 and 202 while against Railways, he managed 12 and 23.

In the ongoing match against Karnataka, he scored 23 in the first innings.
