Virender Sehwag, who injured his ankle during India Blue's match against India Red in the Challenger Series on Sunday, is certain to be fit for the Champions Trophy. Dilip Vengsarkar, the Indian chairman of selectors, said that the injury was not a cause for worry, and that a final assessment on his fitness would be made on Tuesday evening.
"We have another two weeks to go for our first match in the Champions Trophy and it is not a worry," Vengsarkar told Press Trust of India. "Sehwag's fitness condition will known by tomorrow evening."
Opening the innings, Sehwag twisted his ankle while turning around for a second run. He had on-field medical attention but was run out shortly after, for 28. His injury has ruled him out of the final, should India Blue qualify. India play their first match of Champions Trophy on October 15 against England.
