During the 2018 ICC Under-19 World Cup, Nagerkoti and Mavi had terrified the batsmen with their balls and it seemed that the next batch of India’s fast bowlers were ready to create panic in the world. But before he could do so, injuries bothered him. That is when the NCA played an important role in correcting his injuries at the right time.

Both Indian Premier League (IPL) contract players have now started doing the same great performance in competitive cricket again. Nagerkoti, 20, is playing the first competitive cricket in the IPL after nearly 30 months. He and Mavi (21), while performing brilliantly for Kolkata Knight Riders, took 4 wickets during the win over Rajasthan Royals.

A senior BCCI source said, ‘Kamlesh suffered a stress fracture in the back after the World Cup and his ankle also had a’ stress’. The BCCI took him to the UK and consulted several experts on his injury. He stayed in NCA for about one and a half years.

The officer said, ‘On the other hand, Shivam remained in NCA for 8 months, first he suffered ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury and then the effect of’ stress’. Although he recovered quicker than Kamlesh but was injured again after the last home season. BCI-NCA reduced if he relied on his rehabilitation and fat expenses incurred during last 2 seasons to recover from injury. Less than 1.5 crore rupees have been spent on them.

The source said, ‘It will be difficult to tell the exact amount but it is more than one crore rupees and it can be close to 1.5 crores. Medical check-ups, outsourced physiotherapy sessions at NCA are all taken care of like the BCCI does for centrally contracted players. Two people are credited for this and that is NCA chief Rahul Dravid and chief physio Ashish Kaushik.

Nagerkoti also thanked Dravid, Abhishek Nair and others for their performance after the match. Mavi praised NCA, saying, ‘Amit Tyagi (physio) and Ashish Kaushik (chief physio) took care of my injuries and it took me 4 months to get into full rhythm.’
