Recuperating from a shoulder injury, flamboyant India opener Virender Sehwag is not sure if he could regain full fitness before the ICC Champions Trophy, to be held next month in South Africa.

Sehwag had injured his shoulder during the semi-final of the second edition of the Indian Premier League in South Africa after which he had to undergo a surgery for the Grade II lesion at a Nottingham hospital in June.

"My shoulder is better than before. It takes time to recover from any surgery. But if it (recovery) takes time, I can't help it. I can just wait and watch," Sehwag told reporters here today when asked about the recovery.

The Delhi batsman has been following a rehabilitation programme since going under knife, which has almost ruled him out for the September 8-14 tri-series in Sri Lanka and has now also cast a shadow over his availability for the Champions Trophy as well.
