Indian team management wouldn’t have taken the risk of playing Varun in T20-WC: BCCI source
“Varun’s knees are not in the greatest condition. He is in pain and trust me had it not been in a T20 World Cup, perhaps even Indian team management wouldn’t have taken the risk of playing him. To be 100 percent fit, he might later require an extensive rehab but right now, the focus will be on his pain management during T20 World Cup,” stated a BCCI source.
The BCCI insider went on to say that the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) support staff has created a fitness and strength program for Varun Chakravarthy and that the KKR spinner is even provided pain killers so how he can manage to bowl four overs each game.
“As far as I know, the KKR’s support staff has prepared an elaborate strength and conditioning chart for Varun, which is a part of his larger injury management program. He also is administered pain killer injections so that he can bowl his four overs without much difficulty,” concluded the BCCI source.
Varun Chakravarthy has 15 wickets at an avg. of 23.33 in 13 IPL 2021 games.
