Yuvraj downhill with dengue, out of SL ODI Series

In yet another gust to India's campaign at the ongoing cricket tri-series, Yuvraj Singh was today ruled out of tomorrow's ODI against Sri Lanka after being diagnosed with dengue.

"Yuvraj Singh is not available for this game. He has dengue. But he is out of danger," Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni revealed at the pre-match press conference.

Yuvraj has been fighting poor form and fitness for pretty some while and the latest setback just adds to his miseries.

He missed the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka due to flu and was teased as "water boy" by fans when he came to the field to hand out drinks to his teammates.

Others on the uncertain starters list are pacers Ashish Nehra, tending a thigh strain, and Ishant Sharma, who is recuperating from a knee injury.

"We are monitoring Ashish Nehra. He has got a bit of problem with his glute. So we will take the exact decision before the game. Ishant is shaping well. As of now these are the two players who may be missing out," Dhoni said.

"And hopefully by tomorrow there won't be any addition to the list," he added.

Dhoni, however, dismissed reports that Dinesh Karthik, who injure his hand during the practice session yesterday, is doubtful.

"Dinesh Karthik got hit on his thumb but he is fine and it is not a major concern," he said.

The injury-ravaged team is already without pacer Zaheer Khan and openning batsman Gautam Gambhir.
