Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Ishant Sharma share fab time at NCA

Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Ishant Sharma share fab time at NCA

Bengaluru, February 14: Shikhar Dhawan posted a video of him and fellow national team players Hardik Pandya and Ishant Sharma dancing to the beats of a popular Bollywood song while undergoing rehabilitation for their respective injuries at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

"Who said rehab is boring??? Yahaan ke hum sikander," wrote Dhawan with the video posted on his Instagram handle. Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed, who is out of the team with a fractured wrist, commented on it: "One more person gonna join you soon."

Dhawan is recovering from a shoulder injury he had suffered during Australia's ODI tour of India in January. Chances of Ishant participating in the upcoming Test series in New Zealand has all but diminished after he suffered a Grade 3 tear on his right ankle while playing for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy. He has been named in the Test squad subject to fitness and will undergo a fitness test on Saturday.

Pandya was expected to make his comeback to the Indian team after a lengthy injury layoff during the New Zealand tour, but which has since been delayed. After a checkup in the United Kingdom, Pandya is at the NCA where he has started bowling again.

Speaking to IANS, an NCA source in the know of developments said that Pandya has started working on his bowling at the academy and should be available for selection soon.

"He is back from the UK after a routine check-up and has also started bowling from this week. He should be available for selection soon. Can look at him with an eye on the South Africa series as you still have a month to go for the first ODI against the Proteas in Dharamsala," the source said.
