Team India’s star batsman Rohit Sharma has now joined Team India after half the Test series and he started to practice on the field today. During this time, Rohit Sharma tried his hand at fielding and he practiced some fast catching. The BCCI has posted two pictures of Rohit Sharma’s catch practice on its official Twitter handle.
Earlier, Rohit reached Australia two weeks ago. But these days, he was in quarantine for 14 days after reaching here under the necessary health protocol due to Kovid-19. For this reason, he was away from the team. On Wednesday, when his quarter term was over, he joined the team in Melbourne. Team India captain Virat Kohli is also no longer a part of this series after the first Test match due to paternity leave. In such a situation, the batting order of the team will benefit from Rohit’s arrival in the team.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted these two pictures of Rohit Sharma and captioned them, ‘Engine is starting and this is a small glimpse of what is going to happen’.

Rohit Sharma was playing in the IPL before the start of this tour. Here he suffered a hamstring injury, after which he reached for rehab at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore. By 11 December, Rohit recovered completely from this injury and passed his fitness test on the standards set by the BCCI, after which he came to Australia for the Test series. Now in the remaining 2 Tests in the series, Team India is expecting a special miracle from this senior batsman.
This Border Gavaskar Trophy of 4 Test matches is currently 1-1. India had to face defeat in the first Test match but in Melbourne, they have scored 1-1 in the series after registering a resounding victory under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane. The third Test match of the series will be played in Sydney from 7 January.
