New Delhi: Devastator Virender Sehwag is in the Capital to consult doctor for a rib injury, he suffered during a practice session last week.

Sehwag took a day's break from training after being hit by a local bowler at the nets last Friday. Sehwag's fitness has been a cause for concern.

He is, however, expected to fly back to Bangalore and join his teammates on Wednesday, according to sources.

Though it is not a major injury, the dashing batsman is not taking any chances keeping in mind the upcoming matches in the ongoing World Cup, sources claimed.

The batsman, who hurt his left knee while attempting a cut shot in the first match against Bangladesh in Mirpur, is also carrying a mild shoulder injury that has prevented him from bowling.

He scored 35 in Sunday's dramatic tie against England and was there in the field for the entire duration. India's next match is against Ireland in Bangalore on March 6 .
