The Indian team wants him to be fully fit and get his services before the match against Pakistan on October 24. Also the team management wants Varun’s workload to be taken care of.
Quoting a BCCI source related to the matter, PTI has written, ‘The condition of Varun’s knees is not good. He is in pain and the Indian team management might not have taken the risk of feeding him if the T20 World Cup had not happened.
