The Indian cricket team looks to be a strong contender for the semi finals right now as it has won games against big teams and has a couple of games against low ranked sides coming up before the conclusion of the first stage of the tournament.
The blue shirts suffered a major blow during the game against Pakistan when fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar was ruled out for a couple of games due to a hamstring injury. Although Kumar returned to practice on Thursday, however, his place in the side is still not confirmed which is why Navdeep Saini has been called as his cover up.
Saini was among the original set of bowlers India had brought to the United Kingdom (UK) for net practice. He has been called up as a cover up for Kumar as the management would be accessing his condition in the coming few days before making the final call about his future in the tournament.
