September 28, 2009 05:19 PM

The attacking Indian opener Virender Shewag has said that he will be completely fit before the start of the Australian series next month.

He also said that though he can play cricket, his fitness is not up to the mark of International standards.

"I am not yet fit for international cricket as I can't throw (the ball) from the boundary line. But I would be fully fit for the series against Australia,"—he said.

When questioned about his participation in the champions League, he confirmed that he will play for Delhi Dare Devils and will captain the side.

"I will play in the Champions League and in the Irani Cup match. There I'm captaining the side and would be fielding in the slips or other close-in positions,"—he said.

Shewag also said that champion’s league will be a good opportunity for young cricketers as they will be playing against huge crowd and TV audience.

"For youngsters it offers good opportunity to play in front of TV audience and big crowds. Performing well in the Champions League or IPL counts. It's a good platform for the youngsters," he ended.
