The 35-year-old India National Cricket Team batter Ajinkya Rahane suffered an injury on the index finger of his right hand on Day 2 of the ICC World Test Championship Final against Australia National Cricket Team at the Kennington Oval in London on Thursday, June 8.

Rahane sustained the injury when the Aussie skipper Cummins bowled a nasty delivery that went on to smash on the fingers of the batter. On the last ball of the 22nd over, the lethal right-arm pacer pitched the ball on a good length and it was shaping back into the right-hander.
