    Background: THE INDIAN TEST CAPTAIN, NARI CONTRACTOR, WHO WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED IN A MATCH DURING THE TOUR OF THE WEST INDIES EARLIER THIS YEAR, RETURNED TO THE NETS A FEW DAYS AGO.

    CONTRACTOR WAS NEARLY KILLED AND HIS SKULL WAS FRACTURED WHEN HE WAS HIT BY A BALL FROM WEST INDIAN CHARLIE GRIFFITH (CORRECT) IN A MATCH BETWEEN THE INDIAN TOURISTS AND BARBADOS IN MARCH THIS YEAR.

    HE HAD TWO EMERGENCY OPERATIONS IN BARBADOS AND A THIRD ONE IN INDIA RECENTLY. HOWEVER, HE IS NOW FEELING FIT AND IS LOOKING FORWARD TO FIRST CLASS CRICKET AGAIN SOON.

    "I AM RETURNING TO NORMAL", NARI SAID. AND JUDGING FROM HIS TOP FROM IN THE NETS, HE'S RIGHT.
