Yuvraj Singh has been cleared of serious injury after twisting his left knee during a practice session on the second morning of the Perth Test.
Yuvraj, who was left out for the Perth Test after a string of poor scores, sustained the tweak when the team took part in a friendly soccer game.
He collapsed holding his left knee and there were immediate fears his tour could be over. It was the same knee which he had injured during the Champions Trophy in October 2006, an injury which ruled him out for close to three months.
He was taken to a local hospital for scans and was cleared of any major damage, according to MV Sridhar, India's assistant manager, and has been advised one week's rest.
