Yuvi suffers finger injury

India's preparations for their first match of the Champions Trophy on Saturday suffered a setback when Yuvraj Singh injured a finger on his right hand during a fielding session at the University Ground in Johannesburg. The injury was serious enough for him to miss the batting and bowling sessions that were conducted later in the day.
Yuvraj was attended to by physio Nitin Patel before heading for a medical examination. India's team manager Anurag Thakur said a scan would help determine the extent of the injury. "The tests will show whether he has fractured his finger," he said.
India have been plagued with injuries going into the tournament. Virender Sehwag did not travel to South Africa due to a shoulder injury, while Gautam Gambhir, who did not feature in the team's only practice match against New Zealand, is nursing a groin strain.
India's tournament opener is against Pakistan on Saturday, while they will take on Australia and West Indies next week.
