David Warner has been sent for scans on his groin after leaving the field early in India's innings during the second Dettol ODI series, giving Australia their second injury scare in as many matches.
Warner limped off in the fourth over of the second innings having tumbled in the field to save a single from the bat of India opener Shikhar Dhawan.
Warner grimaced and clutched his groin as he got to his feet while the team's physio sprinted onto the field.
The pair immediately went to the changerooms, with Warner limping considerably as he walked off.
A Cricket Australia spokesperson confirmed Warner had suffered an adductor injury and been sent to get X-rays.
"A bad groin strain can take a long, long time to heal," said Fox Cricket commentator Adam Gilchrist.
In addition to four limited-overs matches being played in the next 10 days, there is also only 18 days until the first Vodafone Test match at the Adelaide Oval.
Warner had previously made 83 with the bat in Australia's mammoth 4-389, backing up his 69 from the first match.
The potential blow comes after allrounder Marcus Stoinis suffered a side strain in Friday's 66-run win.
While the extent of Stoinis' injury remains unclear, it is understood he will remain with the squad for the limited-overs campaign against India.
