Melbourne: Although the Indian team's media manager RN Baba confirmed that a fit Bhuvneshwar Kumar is available for selection for Sunday's World Cup clash against South Africa, it is learnt that there is no chance of the seamer being picked in the playing XI at the Melbourne Cricket Ground here.
The XI members for SA clash will be the same that featured against Pakistan on February 15. With Bhuvneshwar not match-fit yet, Dhawal Kulkarni is being used as a net bowler.
