Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra has declared himself fit for the Twenty20 and one day international series with England.

Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra has declared that he is fit to play in the one-day international (ODI) series with England at the end of August.

Nehra fractured a finger during his country's World Cup semi-final win over Pakistan earlier this year, missing the Indian Premier League (IPL) season as a result.

The 32-year-old had been contracted to play for Sahara Pune Warriors during the IPL but was ruled out by the injury.

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

"I am 100% fit for the series and currently training in Bangalore."

India play England in a one-off Twenty20 match on Wednesday, August 31, which is followed by a five-match ODI series.
