New Delhi:

Left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra has submitted his fitness certificate to the BCCI and has made himself available for selection for the upcoming one-off Twenty20 and five-match ODI series against England starting August 31.

"Yes, I have submitted my fitness certificate for the upcoming T20 and ODI series in England," Nehra told PTI from Bangalore on Friday.

Nehra who was in England a couple of weeks back is currently training at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

"I am 100 percent fit for the series and currently training in Bangalore," Nehra added.

Nehra sustained a fracture during the World Cup semi-final at Mohali earlier this year and missed out on the entire Indian Premier League where he was scheduled to play for Sahara Pune Warriors.

Although he had started bowling long back, he had indicated that he didn't want to rush his comeback until fully fit as he wasn't getting the required strength in his hand while batting.
