Bhuvi set for NCA rehab after hernia surgery, Shaw fit to play

| @indiablooms | 16 Jan 2020, 01:58 pm

Mumbai/UNI: India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who suffered a sports hernia after the recently-concluded T20I series against West Indies, has undergone a successful surgery in London.

"Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar travelled to London on January 9 and underwent a successful sports hernia surgery on January 11. He was assisted by Team India physiotherapist Yogesh Parmar, ' BCCI said in a statement on Thursday.

Bhuvneshwar will now return to India and commence his rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

The hernia was Bhuvneshwar's latest setback in an injury-riddled period since the Johannesburg Test of 2018.

The 29-year-old pacer had also suffered hamstring strain during the ODI World Cup in England earlier this year and missed the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh with niggles.

Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw has completed his rehabilitation at the NCA after recovering from a left-shoulder injury. He has already departed for New Zealand for an A series and is available for selection in the national side.

'Opening batsman Prithvi Shaw has completed his rehab at the NCA and has recovered from his left shoulder injury. He has been made available for selection for all formats of the game. Prithvi has left for New Zealand and will soon join India A,” the statement added.

Shaw had recently suffered a shoulder injury while diving to save an overthrow during Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy game against Karnataka.

After injuring his left shoulder while fielding, the Mumbai opener was sent to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for an assessment of the injury.

The 20-year-old passed his fitness test on Wednesday and was seen batting in the nets.

India 'A' are scheduled to play three unofficial ODIs and two unofficial Tests against New Zealand 'A'.
