Yuvraj undergoes MRI scan; but fit for selection tomorrow
Kochi, Apr 5 (UNI) Star Indian batsman Yuvaraj Singh, who scored a match-winning century in the third one-dayer at Goa, today underwent an MRI scan for a slight pain in his right lower leg, but will be available for the fourth ODI against England here tomorrow.
Skipper Rahul Dravid did not attach too much importance to it and said ''it's nothing serious and he (Yuvi) is fit for selection tomorrow''.
Medical report also said the dashing southpaw did not have any problem.
While confirming that Yuvraj underwent MRI scan at the instructions of team physio Gloster for a slight pain in the right lower leg, a spokesman of Medical Trust Hospital here said, ''He did not even need to take any rest. It's only a routine checkup and he is medically fit to play the match tomorrow.'' Ever since the players came to the stadium for a session at the nets, there were reports about Yuvaraj's fitness as he was advised to undergo an MRI scan.
Dravid said four players -- Yuvaraj, Dhoni, Irfan and himself -- were given a bit of break as ''we have played lot of cricket over the last one week''.
''It's not that we will forget to bat or bowl in one day (by taking a day's off from practice)'', he reasoned and said all of them would be playing in the all important match tomorrow, putting at rest the speculations about the Punjab batsman's availability for the match.
''I have not been informed about his (Yuvraj's) fitness. As far as I am concerned he is fit for selection. We all are going to play'', Dravid said and added that all the 15 members are available for selection.
