Brad Haddin is a doubt for Australia against India on Wednesday after being poked in the eye following a miscalculated high-five.

Brad Haddin is a doubt for Australia's one-day international against India on Wednesday after being the recipient of a poke in the eye.

The wicketkeeper sustained the injury at the weekend during the Baggy Greens' 72-run victory in Pune after messing up a high-five attempt with James Faulkner.

Following the removal of Shikhar Dhawan, Haddin went to congratulate his teammate but was poked in the eye after Faulkner miscalculated the high-five effort, which led to him receiving treatment after slumping to the ground.

George Bailey, the Australia captain, told reporters: "How embarrassing. We couldn't even get our high-fives right.

"What about just a handshake! Just take it back to 'well bowled'."

The injury is not expected to keep him out for long but Haddin could miss Wednesday's encounter.
