Ravichandran Ashwin in action during a practice session

India's premier spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Thursday suffered a minor hand injury and as a precautionary measure did not take the field on the second day of the ongoing three-day practice game against Essex.

Ashwin was hit on the right hand during a net session this morning. To avoid any further damage, Ashwin decided not to bowl, bat or field.

The Indian team management said that the physio has taken a look and deduced that it was only a minor injury.

Ashwin later bowled in the nets during the lunch break on Thursday.

India were all out for 395 in 100.2 overs with Dinesh Karthik top-scoring for the visitors with his 82-run knock.

The first Test begins in Birmingham on August 1 and spinners are likely to play a key role, considering the hot conditions, suitable for Indian bowlers.
