New Delhi. Mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy is being considered as India’s key bowler in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021. But the medical team of BCCI will have to work hard on this wrist spinner from Tamil Nadu, whose knee is not fully healed. Changes can be made in the Indian team till October 10, but despite the problem of knees, considering Varun’s bowling, he is certain to play. Even after getting injured, he is playing against IPL 2021.
A board source told news agency PTI, “Varun’s knees are not in very good condition. It hurts him, but if it was not for the T20 World Cup, the Indian team management would not have taken the risk of feeding him. He said, ‘At this point the focus is on relieving him of the pain for the T20 World Cup. After that rehab will be considered. Varun Chakraborty has so far taken 15 wickets in 13 matches in IPL 2021 at an economy of 6.73.

The source said, “The KKR support staff has prepared an elaborate fitness program for Varun Chakraborty. He is also being given pain relief injections so that he can bowl four overs. These injections provide relief in pain. His pain is not visible on TV, but when he is not bowling it hurts. Varun has also impressed veteran batsman like MS Dhoni with his bowling.
