Australia wicketkeeper, their only gloveman on the tour, Matthew Wade suffered a minor fracture when he was hit in the cheek while batting in the nets on the eve of the second Test against India here.

Wade is likely to play the Test. “He copped a knock to the cheek while facing throw downs in the nets this afternoon but batted on during training.

We sent him off for a precautionary scan after the session and he has a minor fracture, but has subsequently been cleared to play provided there is no excessive bruising and swelling overnight,” team doctor Peter Brukner said.
