IPL 2021: KKR in big trouble as Varun Chakravarthy and Kamlesh Nagarkoti yet to receive fitness clearance from NCA before leaving for UAE: Unpleasant news has hit Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) camp just days ahead of their departure for the second leg of IPL 2021 in the UAE. KKR’s mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy and pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti have been called to the National Cricket Academy as the two have been quite injury prone in the past. The two are undertaking fitness tests and will have to receive a green signal from NCA before flying to the UAE for the remaining matches of the tournament.

Yes, Chakravarthy and Nagarkoti are here at the NCA doing their rehab cum fitness routines. I guess once NCA gives them the fit certificate, they will be flying with the rest of the KKR team to the UAE. Gill is still training here,” PTI report said.

Meanwhile, a sense of respite has emerged for KKR as their opener Shubman Gill is geared up to play the remainder of the Indian Premier League after recovering from his injury on the shin of his left leg.

Gill is in the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and has recovered from his shin pain. He will be departing for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) soon for the IPL. He has been at the NCA for a week now,” a source, aware of the development, told IANS.
