Durham [UK], July 21 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday informed that pacer Avesh Khan remains under observation after sustaining a blow to his left thumb on Day 1 of the ongoing three-day warm-up game between Indians and County Select XI.
"UPDATE - Fast bowler Avesh Khan remains under observation of the BCCI Medical Team. He will not be taking any further part on Day 2 and Day 3 of the warm-up game," tweeted BCCI.
India cricketers Washington Sundar and Avesh have been picked in the playing XI for the County Select XI for the three-day warm-up game in Durham.
On Tuesday, Indians won the toss and opted to bat against County Select XI. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have been rested for the clash, and as a result, Rohit Sharma is leading the outfit.
Kohli had been advised rest after he felt stiffness in his back late on Monday evening, while vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has mild swelling around his left upper hamstring which has been addressed by an injection.
KL Rahul hit a classy hundred while Ravindra Jadeja scored a gutsy fifty (75) to revive Indians' innings on Day One of the three-day warm-up game.
At stumps, India ended at 306/9 on day one as Rahul and Jadeja headlined the visitors' show with standout performances. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj remained unbeaten on 3 and 1 respectively. (ANI)
