ICC World Cup 2019: Bhuvneshwar Kumar fit to play again

New Delhi : India's bowling coach Sanjay Bangar has said that Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is now fully recovered from the hamstring injury that he had received during the match against Pakistan.

"Bhuvneshwar is fit to play. He was fit to play against England as well," Sanjay Bangar told reporters at the pre-match conference.

Mohammad Shami had replaced him after he was ruled out for the two matches following the injury. Now, in three matches Shami has taken 13 wickets, making it difficult for Bhuvneshwar's return in the playing XI.

India will now be playing against Bangladesh on the same ground they played England. However, Bangar said the team would go out hungry to be on the right side of the result.

"So far the scheduling has been quite spaced out. We have played matches in a span of two/three days. We are not travelling much, so it does not take a toll on us. We will be hungry to come out to play," Bangar said.

Bangar said that the team would learn from their mistakes and try to execute their skills better in the next match against Bangladesh.

"We know the wicket and ground dimensions really well. We would try to learn from the match against England. We will assess the things that went wrong and try to execute our skills better against Bangladesh," Bangar said.

"The team management will be open to various combinations in the next match. We will look at the wicket and the ground dimensions. We will look at Ravindra Jadeja coming in," he added.

Team India is currently placed on Number 2 position on the points table.
