Venkatesh Iyer among four net bowlers sent back home to India

The bowlers headed back home are expected to feature in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

Team India, ahead of their Super 12 clash against Pakistan on Sunday, have sent back four of their designated net bowlers, all of whom have headed back home in order to participate in the forthcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy season. 

The four bowlers who have been sent back home are believed to be  Karn Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed, Krishnappa Gowtham and all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer, who are already said to have landed in India.

"Yes, there won't be too many net sessions once the tournament starts. The national selectors feel that all the spinners especially would benefit if they go back and play Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for their respective states. They need match practice,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

"Also in this heat with optional practice, we won't need so many spinners.”

The four fast bowlers who have been asked to stay back are Avesh Khan, Umran Malik, Harshal Patel and Lukman Meriwala.
