Washington Sundar suffered a hand injury during IPL 2022 and missed the South Africa series at home and the England tour. However, he is nearing the completion of his rehabilitation at the NCA Bengaluru. But with no domestic cricket during monsoon in India, the BCCI has decided to send the all-rounder to England for a county stint.

Deepak Chahar to make a comeback in WI tour: Meanwhile, pacer Deepak Chahar, who sustained injury during the home series against West Indies in Kolkata, is likely to make a comeback on the West Indies tour.

“I am bowling four to five overs at one go as per my rehab programme right now. My recovery is going pretty well and I think it will take another four to five weeks for me to get match fit,” Chahar told PTI after his rehab session.

The Rajasthan seamer admitted that it will not be possible for him to get fit by the time India plays the 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 the England T20s. Once I am match fit, I will need to play some club level games to check my fitness,” Chahar said

He looked very comfortable when he batted for a considerable amount of time.

So, can one expect that he will be fit for the tour of West Indies?

“I can’t say that but I will definitely try and get fit by then. Let’s see,” the swing bowler said.

India are scheduled to play three ODIs and five T20Is between July 22 and August 7 in the West Indies.
