Ishant Sharma Thanks NCA Fitness Trainer After Recovering From Injury
After recovering from the injury, Ishant Sharma is all set to get back in his game and pluck some wickets for India in the upcoming Test series in New Zealand. The ace Test bowler of India has passed the fitness Test and earned the ticket to take part in the forthcoming white game.

Ishant was seen writhing in pain as the medics checked his injury on the ground during the game. Post the injury a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official had speculated that it might take Ishant six weeks to come back in the game. And it was confirmed that Ishant would have to miss out on the two-match Test series against New Zealand.
However, after the fitness tests conducted at NCA on Saturday (15th February), the BCCI official confirmed that the pacer would soon be joining Virat Kohli & Co. for the Test series.
“Yes, he (Ishant) has passed the fitness test and he will join the team in New Zealand,” a BCCI source told PTI.
