Rubel: I am fit now
Bangladesh pacer Rubel Hossain returned to training on Sunday after his injury lay-off. The right-arm paceman participated in full training session on Tuesday. Rubel underwent surgery on June 21 this year after colliding with a door awkwardly and breaking his jaw during the Champions Trophy, hosted by England and Wales. Following six weeks of recovery, Rubel is now fit and preparing himself for the upcoming Australia Test matches.
“I am fit now. Last day I bowled with short run-up with high intensity. [Tuesday] I bowled with full run-up and felt no pain,” he said.
Recently, the Tigers pacers attended a pace bowling camp under the guidance of bowling coach Courtney Walsh. “Actually there are lots of things to learn from Walsh. He is a legend in Test cricket. I want to learn how to maintain line and length while bowling long spells and claim wickets of set batsmen,” he said. The Tigers' new batting coach Martin O’Neill has arrived in Bangladesh and started working with the batsmen.

Rubel is eager to work with the coach and work on his batting. “I batted in the nets [Tuesday]. But I have not met with the new batting coach yet. I want to learn something extra from him. For example, if there is a tail-ender or a set batsman in the other end, what should be my batting approach,” he said.
