Big-hitting Indian opener Virender Sehwag is seeing a doctor in New Delhi after being struck in the ribs during a net session last week, a report said Tuesday.

"He is going to see a personal physician and is expected on Wednesday," Ranjib Biswal, the India team manager, said, according to the Hindustan Times.

"There is no major concern as such, but it seems he doesn't want to take a chance."

Sehwag is also carrying a shoulder problem that has prevented him from bowling, the report said. Biswal said he had a "niggle in his shoulder."

Sehwag, who hammered 175 in India's opening win over Bangladesh, was struck by a delivery from a net bowler on Friday before India's dramatic tie with England on Sunday, in which he scored 35.
