Varun Aaron, the India and Delhi Daredevils fast bowler, has almost recovered from the injury that has kept him out since December last year and is expected to be able to bowl in the IPL within a week, according to franchise mentor TA Sekar.

Aaron had to pull out of the Test squad for the Australia tour with a stress injury to his back. His last game was India's second ODI against West Indies in Visakhapatnam in December 2011. He impressed with his pace and control before his short stint with the Indian team was ended by injury. Aaron has had a history of back trouble, having suffered two stress fractures soon after he made his Ranji Trophy debut for Jharkhand in the 2008-09 season.

Sekar said that while Aaron was on the verge of regaining full fitness, Daredevils were not willing to take any chances with him. "He is getting very close to 100 percent fitness," he said. "I think, in maybe a week, he should be ready to bowl in the IPL."

"These fast bowler's injuries, you cannot rush, because if it recurs, then he goes back by another two months. We are playing it very safe. He is almost ready to bowl, but we want him to be mentally [prepared], because he hasn't played for a long time. Mentally also he should be match fit."
