I had a nice bowling session earlier. But it was during the fielding session, I felt a bit of pain while throwing. I took a break but the right shoulder kept hurting. An MRI scan was taken soon after, which confirmed my injury," Kumar was quoted as saying to <em>The Indian Express</em>.<br /> <br /> "I had a decent outing in domestic cricket last season and I did well during the Indian Premier League (IPL) too. The A tour against the West Indies was the best chance to leave a mark but injuries are part and parcel of the game. One can't run away from them. I will work hard again and will try to come back much stronger," he further added. Kumar last played for India in the 2012 Asia Cup.
