Ishant Sharma could miss the first ODI against New Zealand in Napier on March 3 because of a shoulder problem. Ishant injured his shoulder during the second Twenty20 international and was able to bowl only two out of his quota of four overs.

"Ishant went for an MRI. The shoulder is still sore," Niranjan Shah, the India team manager, said. "We will monitor him over the next two days. But he could miss the first one-dayer. He has already had an injury on that shoulder."

Ishant hurt his shoulder in the fifth over of the New Zealand innings when he dived to his right from mid-on to stop a blistering straight drive from Jesse Ryder. He bowled one more over after the fall before going off the field for treatment. He was seen sitting in the dugout with an ice pack on his shoulder.

India suffered a last-ball defeat in the second Twenty20 international and lost the series 2-0 to New Zealand.
