The resurfacing of Ishant Sharma’s ankle damage has left the Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) red-faced and Nationwide Cricket Academy (NCA) head physio Ashish Kaushik beneath the scanner.
The 31-year-old speedster may miss the primary a part of the IPL in case he’s required to endure rehabilitation on the much-maligned NCA.
Ishant joined the Indian group in New Zealand 72 hours earlier than the primary Check and bowled almost 23 overs for a five-wicket haul.
The Indian group administration has remained tight-lipped in regards to the end result of his scan outcomes however based on sources within the BCCI, the identical ligament damage on his proper ankle has flared up as soon as once more.
The BCCI media group issued a launch after 24 hours which did not state something apart from what the protecting media already knew.
A number of questions have popped up within the BCCI circle with this newest damage fiasco.
“As soon as Ishant was dominated out for six weeks by the Delhi group physio after his scan stories revealed Grade 3, how did Kaushik and the NCA group come to conclusion that three weeks is nice sufficient for return to aggressive cricket?,” a BCCI insider questioned.
The second query is: was there a better push from the participant himself to get slot in time for the Check sequence?
The third and crucial level is: how thorough was the rehabilitation on condition that the group’s most senior pacer did not play a single aggressive match, which is the norm for any participant coming again into the nationwide fold from an damage.
Ishant had knowledgeable the media in Christchurch that he bowled 21 overs on the NCA in two days, after which he was given the clearance.
He, in reality, tweeted an image of himself with Kaushik, praising the NCA’s position in his rehabilitation.
Many within the BCCI took this as a optimistic publicity after some outstanding India gamers, getting back from injury-induced breaks, opted for private rehabilitation programme with their IPL franchises over the NCA.
Just lately, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had mentioned that the NCA can be a one-point centre for all contracted gamers.
