Shoulder injury puts Tiwary out of action

ESPNcricinfo staff

Bengal batsman Manoj Tiwary will be out of action for a few weeks after suffering a shoulder injury during the Bengal-Delhi semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy in Vishakhapatnam on Saturday. Currently, Tiwary is at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore to decide on a rehabilitation programme in consultation with the NCA coaches.

"No one likes to be out of action and it's really frustrating to get injured. Hopefully I will recover in time," Tiwary told PTI. When asked to describe the nature of his injury, he said it wasn't a dislocated shoulder but there may be some tissue damage.

Tiwary had missed the ODIs against Pakistan and England late last year after suffering from a side strain. He made a comeback to competitive cricket in the Irani Cup against Mumbai in February and followed it up with a century for India A against Australia in a tour game in Chennai.

    He should change his name Manoj Tiwary to Manoj Injury. Anyway, we hope he will comeback in to the action very soon.

    Probably this is one reason why he is considered for selection. his fitness. He plays for the 3 months and gets injured and returns out of form when his gets his fitness back. He has to improve his fitness otherwise he will not survive in international cricket. We all know what happened to vaughan.
