Cairns confident of recovering in time

Chennai Oct. 26. New Zealand's star all-rounder Chris Cairns is confident that he would recover in time from a hamstring strain for the next match of the TVS Cup tri-nation ODI series, that will see the Kiwis taking on Australia at Faridabad on Oct 29.

"It is much better now. I should be okay,'' said Cairns after a Kiwi practice session at the Mayajaal ground, here, on Sunday. Apart from delivering the big blows with the willow during the nets, Cairns bowled off a shortened run-up.

Cairns had suffered a niggle in his hamstring during the tournament opener against India on Thursday at the M.A. Chidambaram.
