The BCCI medical team confirmed India all-rounder's injury on his right shoulder.
"BCCI medical team will monitor his progress and rehabilitation programme and update accordingly. Hardik was struck by a ball during a net session before the start of the third Test match against England in Mohali," said a BCCI release.
In such a brief career so far, @hardikpandya7 is seeing more ups and downs than most people. Now, a fracture in the shoulder. Wish him well— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) November 29, 2016
The rehabilitation will start post recovery and it makes Hardik a doubtful starter for India's ODI series against England starting in Pune on January 15.
Pandya was struck by a ball during a net session before the start of the third Test match against England in Mohali.
He was released from India's Test squad owing to the injury. Pandya got his maiden Test call up before the start of the Test series against England. Opener KL Rahul and wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha are already in the injured list.
