As per a Cricbuzz report, the injury also puts Harshal Patel’s participation in the T20 World Cup in doubt.

The squad for the Asia Cup is expected to be announced on Monday. Patel’s injury could provide a window of opportunity for Deepak Chahar, who has been out of contention with a back injury since February. Chahar has now attained full fitness and returns for the Zimbabwe ODIs, and a good show could propel him into Rahul Dravid’s plans.

Harshal Patel has played 17 T20Is since his debut in November last year and was considered a vital part of India’s plans for the T20 World Cup in Australia. However his injury, the return of Deepak Chahar and the emergence of Arshdeep Singh could all play a huge factor in the final months in the build-up to the tournament.
