India seamer Irfan Pathan was cleared on Sunday for the World Cup in the West Indies starting next month after proving his fitness and bowling form in a domestic one-day game.
The 22-year-old left-armer overcame a bad first spell to take two for 48 from 8.4 overs for West Zone against Central Zone in a Deodhar Trophy match.
"Irfan’s trip to West Indies is certain," chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar told reporters after watching him in action.
"There is no alteration in the 15 players who were selected for the World Cup."
Vengsarkar asked Pathan on Friday to undergo a fitness test after a shoulder strain meant he played just one of eight games in the recent home one-day series against West Indies and Sri Lanka.
