Perth, Dec.14 (ANI): Key West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul has undergone scans on an injured finger and is in doubt for the third Test against Australia, starting at the WACA Ground on Wednesday.

Chanderpaul suffered the injury during the drawn second Test in Adelaide and is still experiencing some discomfort, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

A West Indies spokesman, however, said the scan was merely a precaution and team doctors expected Chanderpaul to be fit to play.

Results of the scan are expected to be revealed either Monday night or Tuesday morning.

The 35-year-old, who averages 48.7 in Test cricket, is a key plank in the West Indies' youthful line-up and returned scores of 62 and 27 in Adelaide. (ANI)
