India seam bowler Praveen Kumar is likely to miss the World Cup due to an elbow injury.

Kumar, 24, sustained the problem during the recent tour of South Africa, forcing him to return home midway through the one-day series.

After receiving treatment at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore, he went to England in an effort to aid his recovery.

Kumar was picked ahead of Shanthakumaran Sreesanth and Ishant Sharma in India's 15-man World Cup squad, with the hope that he would recover in time.

Sreesanth would appear the obvious replacement should Kumar be officially ruled out.

The tournament gets under way with the opening match between co-hosts India and Bangladesh in Dhaka on February 19.
