Canberra: Amid growing concerns over his fitness, Indian pacer Ishant Sharma is learnt to have got his troublesome ankle checked by a doctor here.
The Indian camp though maintained that there was nothing serious with Ishant who walked off the field after bowling just 5.3 overs on the opening day of the first practice match against CA Chairman's XI on Thursday in the run-up to the first Test on December 26.
"There is no worry on him. He had some discomfort while bowling and he has seen a doctor. Hopefully he should be fit before the first Test," said batsman Rohit Sharma who scored 56 at the Manuka Oval here on Friday.
