Chahar, who sustained injury during home series against West Indies in Kolkata, looked in good shape during his morning session at the NCA. The Rajasthan seamer admitted that it will not be possible for him to get fit by the time India play T20 series against England in the second week of July.

“It’s a step-by-step process as far as recovery is concerned. I don’t think I will be fit for England T20s. Once I am match fit, I will need to play some club-level games to check my fitness,” Deepak Chahar said He looked very comfortable when he batted for a considerable amount of time.
