India fast bowler Umesh Yadav has been taken for scans after he suffered a calf muscle injury during the third day of the second Test against Australia on Monday, PTI reported.

The 33-year-old bowler was bowling his 4th over when he experienced severe pain in his left leg and immediately called for medical attention. He then limped back to the dressing room.

"Umesh Yadav complained of pain in his calf while bowling his 4th over and was assessed by the BCCI medical team. He is being taken for scans now," BCCI media team released a statement, PTI reported.

Team India is already missing the services of seasoned pacers Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma and Yadav’s injury will only add to the team's woes in the four-match Test series.

While updates are being awaited on the fast bowler’s injury, India's decision to play five bowlers might help their cause.

India bowled out Australia for 195 in their first innings and put up 326 for a substantial lead of 131 runs. India lost the opening match and is now trailing the series 0-1.
