Rohit Sharma was hit on the left toe by a crushing yorker from Mohammed Amir in the game against Pakistan. According to information, a precautionary X-ray has been done and luckily no fracture has been detected.

"Rohit had complained of soreness. There is no damage to his foot, and he is currently undergoing recovery under the medical staff," a team official was quoted by TOI as saying.

But with both openers being injured, it does put a question-mark on the playing XI, which has been more or less same in the last eight T20 games.

For the record, India have won seven out of the eight games they have played this year. After the Pakistan game, the possibility of a new opening combination cannot be totally ruled out.

It could well be Parthiv Patel walking alongside Rahane, in case both Rohit and Shikhar are ruled out of the Lanka tie.
