"I am completely fit and will put up my best against Delhi in the four-day Ranji match," Aaron said.

"I am feeling great and facing no problem while bowling," said 23-year-old, who last played in IPL in 2012 after missing the tour of Australia in December 2011 due to stress reaction in the back.

Reiterating that he would not compromise with his speed, Aaron said he was bowling at his natural pace.

Asked whether Jharkhand would adopt any strategy against a strong Delhi side, Aaron said the home team would play to its strength.

"I do not think that the presence of star cricketers in Delhi team would make any difference as we too have players who represented the country or played in IPL," he said.

Aaron made his Test debut against the West Indies in November 2011 in Mumbai.

THE MOST VENOMOUS

Late on Wednesday night, my smartphone flashed the caller's name 'Salim Khan'. I presumed it was Khan wanting to inform me of yet another exciting snake rescue or a tragic snakebite. But my heart sank. It was not Khan but a panicky lady blabbering at the other end. I thought my worst fears had come true: after having rescued hundreds of venomous snakes from tricky spots, I thought this time Khan had himself been bitten by one and that his relatives were informing me. However, it was not exactly a venomous snake that had struck Khan. It was MAN, a species that has proved deadlier than the most toxic of slithering serpents.  Writes VIKRAM JIT SINGH
