Pune:Middle-order batsman Mohammad Kaif was on Wednesday declared fit by the Indian team management and cleared to play in a Duleep Trophy tie, commencing November 4 at Aurangabad.

"The update on Kaif is that he has been declared fit by India physiotherapist John Gloster. He has been cleared to play in the Duleep Trophy tournament," the team's media manager, Wing Commander M Baladitya, told reporters in Pune.

Kaif was ruled out of the first five matches of the ongoing one-day series against the visiting Sri Lankans after he suffered a hamstring tear during the Challenger Trophy in Mohali last month.

The batsman is expected to represent Central Zone against North Zone in the Duleep Trophy match, commencing November 4.

The Uttar Pradesh player would then be available for selection for the last two one-day ties against Sri Lanka, at Rajkot (November 9) and Vadodara (November 12).

The team for these matches will be picked during the fifth ODI at Ahmedabad on November 6.
