Fit Tiwary awaits ODI call-up

New Delhi, Jan 17: India's Manoj Tiwary says he has recovered completely from a side strain that kept him out of action for over a month.

The injury-prone cricketer has been a prolific scorer for Bengal in the domestic circuit.

Since the selectors have picked the squad for the first three ODIs, they are due to announce the squad for the remaining two ODIs to be played on Jan 23 (Mohali) and Jan 27 (Dharamsala).

With Manoj Tiwary also fit to play, it depends on the selectors when they meet later this week to select the squad.

According to Tiwary, the fitness report is expected to reach the selectors before the meeting.

"They should have sent the fitness report to the selectors yesterday. I am now back home in Kolkata, looking to play a few club games," he said.

Moreover his trainers are satisfied with the progress especially after the side strain that forced him to stay off action.

"I am feeling fit for selection and have successfully completed my rehabilitation," Tiwary said.

"The physio and the trainer were very satisfied with my recovery and I was progressing better than expected in fact. I was able to train with very little pain," Tiwary added.

Tiwary had suffered an injury while playing a Ranji Trophy tie against Saurashtra in Rajkot last December. He was also selected for the two T20 Internationals against England but the injury forced him to stay off the field for six weeks.
