Ishant Sharma passes fitness test for NZ Tests
It’s a big relief for India as fast bowler Ishant Sharma has successfully passed a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy and will now join Team India in New Zealand for the 2-Test series starting February 21. The pacer sustained a Grade 3 tear on his right ankle during Delhi’s Ranji Trophy match against Vidarbha. The second Test is from February 29. Earlier, it was feared Ishant will need 6 weeks to recover.
