Kolkata, Feb 3 (CRICKETNMORE) - Indian medium-pacer Ishan Porel played the final three knockout matches of the ICC U19 World Cup despite not having fully recovered from a foot injury, his coach Bibhash Das said on Saturday.

"It's was not exactly an ankle injury. He has a tear on the outstep of his left leg. It's only because of the advanced treatment in New Zealand that he could play in the final three matches. Such a kind of injury would normally take a minimum three weeks to recover. He had a tissue rupture and put an insole in his shoe before bowling," Das told the medai here.
