RP ready to resume national duty
Pacemen Rudra Pratap Singh on Saturday said he had recovered from the hamstring injury which cut short his Australian cricket sojourn and was ready to resume national duty against South Africans at home next month.
Singh, who had suffered the injury on the second day of the fourth and final Test at Adelaid, said he would join the training camp at Bangalore from Monday.
"It was disappointing to leave the team in the middle of a series but I am now feeling completely fit after the rest. I will start training at the camp in Bangalore from Monday," Singh told reporters on sidelines of a function.
Singh refused to touch upon the racism row involving Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds.
The Uttar Pradesh seamer said he was in favour of the tournaments like the Indian Premier League, a BCCI-promoted venture beginning April 18, and said it would help player improve their game.
"It will be good for the game and would help the players improve. I will also be a part of it," he added.
