Gambhir undergoes MRI scan in London
Wednesday 24 August 2011

Indian opener Gautam Gambhir underwent an MRI scan in London to ascertain the extent of his head injury ahead of the limited-overs series against England starting with a one-off Twenty20 match on August 31.

The team management is keeping its fingers crossed as Gambhir is critical to India's plans in the ODIs now that his fellow opener Virender Sehwag has been completely ruled out for the five one-dayers and one-off Twenty20 match.

Gambhir suffered the concussion after he backpedalled at mid-on in a bid to catch a miscued pull off Kevin Pietersen.

The chance was fluffed when Gambhir fell back and hit his head on the ground with a thud.
