Bangalore: Pace spearhead Javagal Srinath said on Tuesday he would seek the opinion of a doctor in England on his knee injury before taking a decision on his availability for the home series against New Zealand. "I am going to England very soon... next two or three days to see a doctor and seek opinion on the state of my knee," Srinath, who played a stellar role in India's World Cup campaign, said. Srinath said he would take a decision on his availability in the next two to three weeks.

The bowler had made himself unavailable for the conditioning camp here ahead of the series as he is undergoing treatment for the injury sustained during his stint with English country Durham. "I am currently having the rehabilitation programme," Srinath said.

Responding to a question, he said he has not given any thought on retirement from the game. BCCI secretary S K Nair said in Mumbai earlier on Tuesday - while announcing the 36- member probables list - Srinath was not ruled out of the New Zealand series and "may be considered" provided he is fit.
