Shaun Tait racing to be fit for India tour


Shaun Tait believes he is “touch and go” to be fit for Australia’s limited-overs tour of India later this month as he gradually recovers after having elbow surgery in June.

Tait was originally named in Australia’s T20 squad but had to pull out when his progress was slower than first expected. “I guess I’m even money [for India] but I said that about South Africa as well and that didn’t work out. It’s probably touch and go again. You can’t rush these things, my elbow has a fair bit to do with my cricket and the way I bowl puts a fair bit of stress on it,” Tait said.

Tait’s recovery was hindered by a secondary infection which has since cleared. “It has taken a little longer than expected but it’s feeling pretty good and has improved out of sight in the past week,” he said. “The pain is minimal. It just needs to get some strength in it,” said Tait.

Tait is preparing for a fitness test next week to determine whether he can travel to India for the series of seven ODIs and one Twenty20 match. The first game is at Bangalore in just over a fortnight, on September 29.
