Chelmsford: India’s premier spinner Ravichandran Ashwin suffered a minor hand injury and as a precautionary measure did not not take field on the second day of the ongoing three-day practice game against Essex.

Ashwin was hit on the right hand during a net session and to avoid any further damage, Ashwin decided not to bowl, bat or field on Thursday.

The Indian team management said that the physio has taken a look and deduced that it was only a minor injury. Ashwin later bowled in the nets during the lunch break.
