India vs West Indies: So, Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has recovered from his injury! Bhuvi had picked up a niggle in his hamstring during India’s match against Pakistan and that kept him out for the Afghanistan clash. Now, it seems he is recovered from his injury and ready to roll. In India’s latest indoor practice session at Old Trafford, Manchester, Bhuvi was seen in his strides rolling his arms over. He looked in good shape and rhythm as he ran in and delivered. This would be a great piece of news for his fans who have been waiting to see him back opening the bowling for India.
Here is the video:
With Bhuvi ready for selection, it would be a dilemma for BCCI to select. It is a good problem to have. Shami, who was replacing Bhuvi picked up a memorable hat-trick and hence it would be interesting to see what happens at the selection.
Navdeep Saini on Monday arrived in Manchester as a net bowler to provide practice to Indian batsmen ahead of the World Cup match against the West Indies, scheduled for June 27. The right-arm fast bowler, who played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2019 IPL, is the only net bowler with the Men in Blue and he will train with them, the BCCI said. Deepak Chahar and Avesh Khan, the reserve bowlers, returned to India in the first week of June, while Khaleel Ahmed remained with the team.
However, now with the departure of Khaleel, the Indian team has no net bowler. The call-up of Navdeep can probably lead to him being the stand-by of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who suffered tightness in his left hamstring and walked off the field during the clash with Pakistan and subsequently missed the match against Afghanistan.
