Durham [UK], July 20 (ANI): Fast bowler Avesh Khan on Tuesday sustained a blow to his left thumb in the ongoing warm-up game.

Avesh has gone for a scan and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) medical team is monitoring him.

"UPDATE - Fast bowler Avesh Khan sustained a blow to his left thumb on Day 1 of the warm-up game. He has gone to get a scan. The BCCI Medical Team is monitoring him," BCCI said in a statement.

India cricketers Washington Sundar and Avesh have been picked in the playing XI for the County Select XI for the three-day warm-up game in Durham.

Indians won the toss and opted to bat against County Select XI. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have been rested for the clash, and as a result, Rohit Sharma is leading the outfit.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma have also been rested for the clash, and in their place, Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav have been called into the XI.

Indians has steadied the ship after losing early wickets in the match. The visitors have scored more than 250 runs on day one of the warm-up game.

In the second session, KL Rahul and Jadeja helped India recover as the duo took visitors to 188/4 at the end of Tea.

At the start of the session, an impatient shot by Hanuma Vihari resulted in his dismissal as the batsman failed to capitalise on the chance of making it big in the warm-up game.

In the first session, India scored 80 runs for the loss of three wickets at lunch on day one. Lyndon James struck twice and a rare stumping dismissal for Cheteshwar Pujara put India on backfoot.

Rohit Sharma scored just 9 runs while Mayank Agarwal was sent back after scoring 28 in the first innings. Pujara's wicket just before the lunch put India on backfoot before Rahul and Jadeja revived the innings. (ANI)
