Badani who was on air with Krishnamachari Srikkanth on the regional feed was hit with the bat by Srikanth while the latter was explaining a shot.
At first, it seemed like Badani would cope with the blow but he ultimately walked out of the set in pain.
“To all enquiring how I am, I am in terrible pain but luckily no fracture. It’s blunt trauma and am under medication. Hope to recover soon and be back on the sets.” he wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the traditional rivalry between subcontinental rivals Pakistan and India on Sunday will be spiced up by how well Virat Kohli performs at the T20 Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Kohli returns to international cricket after a break of seven weeks during which India has outplayed the West Indies and Zimbabwe in white-ball cricket without its ace batter.
