Injured Anderson to have six-week break ahead of India series

India Cricket Team

"In the last one year, I have tried to stay fit, and improve upon my fitness, which has changed everything", he said. Even now, irrespective of the position I bat at, I consider myself as a proper batsman. I love Test cricket because it's the ultimate test of a cricketer and I am thrilled to be finally playing a Test.

The local boy, who was dismissed for a golden duck during his last Test appearance at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, is determined to make it count this time. A successful A tour of United Kingdom as captain can help him a secure a spot for the England series but Nair prefers staying in the present. The third Test will be played at Trent Bridge on August 18. Players who have been selected for the series against Ireland and England will undergo the test on June 15.

He said: "The idea is to put in the work now and then by the end of July Championship game against Yorkshire that I will be ready for and then get through the five Test matches if possible. I think all of our spinners are proven wicket-takers in Test cricket".

"The whole world knows that [we have very good spinners in] Rashid Khan, Mujeeb [Ur Rahman], [Mohammad] Nabi, Rahmat [Shah], Zahir [Khan]", ESPNcricinfo quoted Stanikzai, as saying.

Nair said both Rashid and Mujeeb will find Test cricket a different ball game.

Though Navdeep Saini was the part of Royal Challengers Bangalore squad in the IPL 11, he did not get to play a single game.

Tough prison term for Mexican drug cartel leader
In January 2016, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to import and distribute cocaine and conspiring to launder money. Initially, prosecutors asked for 660 months in prison or 55 years, but the judge handed down 589 months instead.

It's time to Leave... for lunch
They gave him a phone number for Mr Trump's team, after the Russian admitted Moscow was not prepared for a Republican victory. He said: "I like to think I'm an evil genius with a white cap who controls all of democracy, but clearly that's not true".

Reuters/Ipsos poll: Half of Americans approve of Trump's handling of North Korea
That concession to Kim appeared to catch the Pentagon and officials in Seoul off guard, and some South Koreans were alarmed. South Korea will now purchase F-35A stealth aircraft from Lockheed Martin, one of the company's most modern fighters.

What is your first memory of Test cricket? "If I can play such a knock again it's obviously good, but I am only looking to perform and win games for the team". "So, it will be new for everyone", he said.

This year he was the star of the Indian Premier League, the cash-rich extravaganza in short-format Twenty20 cricket, helping the Sunrisers Hyderabad reach the final and more than justifying his $1.41-million price tag.

"It's been a long time since my triple hundred".

"It has been two years".

And wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Shahzad also admitted that Afghanistan's spinners, particularly Rashid - who is now ranked number one and number two in T20Is and ODIs respectively - are as good as any other spinners in the world and can push India hard in Bengaluru. "You know what our spinners have been doing of late. I would like to do well in this Test and go on from there", said Nair, who has experienced highs and lows in his brief worldwide career so far.

Asked how he is managing the pressure of cementing his spot in the team, Karun, who has been picked for the squad after Rohit Sharma's poor run in South Africa, said, "Unless one keeps scoring consistently, there is no place in the team".
