Allaying fears about India's pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah's shoulder injury, a official Monday said there were no major concerns since the scans have come clear.

A vital cog in India's World Cup plans, Mumbai Indians' landed awkwardly on his left shoulder while fielding during Sunday's contest against Delhi Capitals night, causing concern in the Indian camp.

The national team relies heavily on Bumrah, who has earned the reputation of being the world's best bowler in death overs.

The Gujarat pacer did not come out to bat in Sunday's match, which added to the concerns about his injury.

However, a official told PTI on the condition of anonymity that Bumrah's injury was not serious in nature.

"had some shoulder scans done in the morning and was kept in the loop. His scan reports were okay. The tests that were done were all those recommended by the BCCI," the official said.

When asked why was still in Mumbai while the team has already left for Bengaluru, the official said," Since the reports came late and the team has already left, he is travelling separately."

Mumbai Indians' next match is against Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 28.
