PUNE, India (AP) — India all-rounder Hardik Pandya hobbled off the field with a suspected ankle injury in the Cricket World Cup game against Bangladesh on Thursday.

Pandya was bowling the ninth over of the innings when he tried to stop a straight drive by Litton Das, twisting his left ankle and tumbling over.

He got up and tried walking but fell back to the ground as the Indian medical team rushed in.

Play was held up as Pandya received treatment. He got up again and tried a practice run-up before consulting with skipper Rohit Sharma and walking off.

The fans at the MCA Stadium cheered as Virat Kohli bowled the remaining deliveries in the over.

Pandya is a key member of India’s team as the host nation attempts to win the competition for a third time.

He has picked up five wickets in three games and took 2-34 against Pakistan in Ahmedabad. He has only batted once, against Australia, and scored 11 not out.
