Injured New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson rejoined the Mumbai Indians (MI) squad on Sunday night, ahead of their crucial encounter with Delhi Daredevils (DD) on Tuesday.
Earlier, during the Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015, Anderson had to fly back to New Zealand due to a fractured left-hand finger.
"He went back to New Zealand to undergo treatment for the injured finger. He returned to Mumbai last night and his fitness will now be assessed. His name had never been pulled out of the squad," a spokesperson for MI told The Times of India.
Anderson has played four matches for MI in this editon of the IPL before he was forced to leave for New Zealand. He was replaced by his fellow countryman Mitchell McClenaghan.
Anderson was seen practising in the nets alongside the rest of the MI team at the optional practice session on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium. He also bowled at a normal pace. He is still recovering from his injury and is unlikely to be considered for Tuesday's clash against Delhi Daredevils.
Mumbai Indians had an awful start in the tournament, losing four matches on a trot. But they have managed to get their campaign back on track, winning all four of their last four matches. They are currently placed at seventh position in the points table, just above Kings XI Punjab, who are languishing at the bottom of the table. Their upcoming clash against the Daredevils is an all-important clash.
