In-form Indian pacer S Sreesanth hurt his finger in the nets but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni assured the injury was not serious and the speedster would play the third and final cricket Test against Sri Lanka starting here on Wednesday.

Sreesanth hurt the little finger of his right hand while practising at the nets but Dhoni played down any injury scare ahead of the match.

“He hurt his finger a bit but it’s not too serious. He would play tomorrow,” Dhoni said.

Sreesanth turned in a match-winning performance in the second Test in Kanpur, taking a five-wicket haul in the first innings. India won the match by an innings and 144 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
