Sharma in doubt for opening ODI in Napier

4:17 pm on 1 March 2009

Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma could miss the first One Day International against New Zealand in Napier on Tuesday because of a shoulder problem.

Ishant injured his shoulder during the second Twenty20 international in Wellington on Friday night and was able to bowl only two out of his quota of four overs.

Ishant has had an MRI and he'll be monitored over the next couple of days.

He has previously injured that shoulder.
