Sreesanth, Powar to be fit soon: Coach

Chappell said the injured Ramesh Powar and S Sreesanth are recovering well and should be back in action soon.

Kingston (Jamaica): India coach Greg Chappell has said the injured bowling duo of Ramesh Powar and S Sreesanth are recovering well and should be back in action soon.

While paceman Sreesanth is in line for tomorrow's second One-Dayer at Sabina Park, off-spinner Powar could take one game more before he regains match fitness, the coach said.

"They are both recovering well. While Sreesanth should be able to play tomorrow, Ramesh may need an extra game before we consider him again," Chappell said.

The coach said their quick recovery could be attributed to an intensive rehabilitation work over the last few days.

"They have both recovered quickly, and this is a result of some intensive rehabilitation work over the last few days to which they have responded very well," he said after India snatched a thrilling five-wicket win in the first match on Thursday.

Powar twisted his ankle during a training session on Monday while Sreesanth is believed to have picked an injury during the two-match ODI series against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi last month.
