Kuldeep Yadav fitness update: Things look optimistic for Kuldeep. The wrist-spinner injured his hand in practice at the West Indies home series and was ruled out. He is recovering well and has started bowling at the NCA. The fitness test will determine if he will be available for the five-game T20 series.

However, it will be a crucial week because if he misses the West Indies tour he is practically out of the T20 World Cup count. Both Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja are ahead of him in the pecking order thanks to their excellent batting skills. Yuzvendra Chahal has already confirmed her place.
