Mitchell Johnson fit to play in the IPL
Australia pacer Mitchell Johnson was Monday declared fit to play for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League that starts in the UAE April 16.
The toe infection Johnson suffered in the series against South Africa had spread to his leg and also ruled the left-arm fast bowler out of the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
But Cricket Australia (CA) Monday removed all doubts and in a statement said that Johnson was cleared to resume training.
"Mitchell Johnson has been cleared to resume playing duties after recovering from an infection in his right leg that ruled him out of the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. Johnson's next playing commitment is with Kings XI Punjab in the IPL. The tournament starts in the UAE next Wednesday, April 16," CA said in a statement.
Australia had a disastrous World T20, losing three of their four group matches.
Their only victory in the tournament came against Bangladesh, who went winless.
