Gautam Gambhir nearly fit for England ODI series

Posted by Admin On 10:46 AM

Gautam Gambhir's contribution in the ODI series against England looks likely with the Indian opener likely to be fit for the five-match rubber. Team manager Shivlal Yadav long-established this on Wednesday. Yadav said Gambhir should be fine for next month's ODI series after his MRI scan did not show anything untoward.
He, however, said that the left-hander might not play in the practice game against Sussex on Thursday. Gambhir is dangerous to India's plans in the ODIs now that his fellow opener Virender Sehwag has been completely ruled out for the five one-dayers and one-off Twenty20 match.
Gambhir suffered the concussion after he backpedalled at mid-on in a bid to catch a miscued pull off Kevin Pietersen during the Oval Test. The chance was fluff when he fell back and hit his head on the ground with a thud.
Even though speculation over his accessibility has died down after the MRI scan, the left-hander did not come out to practice with his colleagues today. The present series has been one of disaster for Gambhir. He was painfully hit on his right elbow while fielding at onward short leg during the first Test at Lord's last month. He consequently had to miss the second Test at Trent Bridge. He did play the third Test at Edgbaston and scored 38 and 14 in the two innings.
