Varun Aaron is back training for a fresh season at the MRF Pace Foundation. The 23-year-old India paceman is attempting to make a comeback from a worrying back injury. Aaron, who was present during the practice session at the Pace Foundation here on Monday, said to The Hindu, “I plan to play active cricket from September. I think I will make a complete recovery from the injury.”

The 23-year-old paceman was operated on lumbar vertebrae (L5) in London in February. To reduce the chance of another fitness concern, the Jharkhand fast bowler said, “I want to switch from a front-on action to a semi-open release that will put less strain on my back.”

Aaron has played a lone Test and four ODIs for India. He caught the eye for the speed he could generate.
