Nehra declares himself fit for Eng tour

Nehra who was in England a couple of weeks back is currently training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

"I am 100 per cent fit for the series and currently training in Bangalore," Nehra added.

Nehra sustained a fracture during World Cup semi-final at Mohali earlier this year and missed out on the entire Indian Premier League where he was supposed to play for Sahara Pune Warriors.

Although he had started bowling long back, he had indicated that he doesn't want to rush his comeback until fully fit as he wasn't getting requisite strength in his hand while batting.
