The Indian cricket team on Sunday got an injury scare after openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir were rendered doubtful starters for Monday's fourth cricket one-dayer against Australia in Mohali.

The BCCI said a final decision on whether they play on Monday would be taken on the morning of the game.

Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has been brought in as cover for the duo.

"Dinesh Karthik will be joining the Indian team in Mohali," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.

"Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir sustained injuries during the third match of the Hero Honda Cup 2009, played at Delhi on October 31. A final decision on their availability for the fourth match, to be played at Mohali on November 2 will be taken on the morning of the game," the statement read.

Confident after having acquired back-to-back wins, the Indian team would be gunning for a treble of triumphs to stretch their lead against a depleted Australia in the fourth cricket one-dayer in Mohali on Monday.

While Sehwag was hit on the foot by a Peter Siddle yorker last night, Gambhir was struck by a Ricky Ponting pull while fielding.

But India's injury worries pale when compared to the blows the Aussies have taken. They landed in India a depleted side and things have only got worse for them. PTI
