Adelaide, Jan 28 (UNI) Former India captain Rahul Dravid has been sidelined for at least two weeks after being injured on the final day of the fourth Test against Australia here today.

Dravid, who was struck on the glove by a Brett Lee bouncer, was showing signs of discomfort inspite of receiving treatment from physio John Gloster.

He then decided to leave the field in what will probably be his last appearance in Australia.

The 35-year-old was taken for an X-ray and spent the day using ice-cubes on the fractured finger.

A final report it awaited but he is unlikely to be fit before at least another couple of weeks.

Dravid hasn't been included in the ODI squad for the tri-series against Sri Lanka and hosts Australia.

He is, however, expected to be fit for the home series against South Africa, in March.
