BCCI declares Bhuvneshwar Kumar fit, to play for Ind A

Bengaluru: The BCCI had declared pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar fit and said he will be a part of India A squad in the ongoing Quadrangular series.

“Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been declared fit and will be a
part of India A squad in the ongoing Quadrangular series,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Kumar had aggravated his lower back injury while playing the third India-England ODI match in the UK. He was subsequently ruled out of the ongoing India-England Test series and had to undergo recovery training at the National Cricket Academy here.

Kumar will play against South Africa A on August 29 here as Shreyas Iyer-led India A will battle it out for the third position in the Quadrangular series. India A are already out of the Quadrangular series as they could manage just nine points since they lost to South Africa A recently.
