In trouble at KKR; NCA Yet to Clear Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Ngarkoti for Fitness

Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti are still awaiting fitness clearances from the NCA before flying to the UAE in IPL 2021. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) camp has received unfortunate news just days before they depart for the second leg of the IPL in the UAE. Due to their injury histories, KKR’s mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy and pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti have been called up to the National Cricket Academy. They must pass fitness tests and receive a green signal from NCA before flying to the UAE for the remaining matches of the tournament.

Yes, Chakravarthy and Nagarkoti are here at the NCA doing their rehab cum fitness routines. I guess once NCA gives them the fit certificate, they will be flying with the rest of the KKR team to the UAE. Gill is still training here,” PTI report said.

Meanwhile, Shubman Gill, who suffered an injury to his left shin in the first innings of the Chennai Super Kings match, is in good condition to play in the remaining matches in the Indian Premier League.

Gill is in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and has recovered from his shin pain. He will be departing for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) soon for the IPL. He has been at the NCA for a week now,” a source, aware of the development, told IANS.
