At PCA stadium in Mohali on Monday, Harbhajan was seen limping during the practice session with his ankle bandaged.

He though took part in the training after taking a break. Last evening, he also bowled at Sector-16 stadium nets after the conclusion of the match between Australia and Board President's XI.

Then he went to Fortis Hospital in Mohali for the MRI scan. The hospital sources had said that there was no serious injury but since he got a sprain, it would be advisable to take rest for the next few days.

Meanwhile, Sehwag batted with ease after having hurt his right knee while facing speedster Ishant Sharma during Sunday's net session, at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.

Left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir, who was on Sunday rushed to hospital after being hit on the right wrist by a Ben Hilfenhaus delivery, also had a knock.

Gambhir didn't field or bat on the final day of the warm-up match against Australia. The opener appeared to be in good touch on Tuesday as he kept stroking the balls well during the net session.

Rahul Dravid arrived on Tuesday and straightway headed for the nets.

Meanwhile, pacers Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan bowled with full steam during the three-hour session.

Skipper MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Murali Vijay are expected to reach Mohali on Wednesday.
