Rohit Sharma, the Indian Opener and Mumbai Indians skipper is all set to play the finals against Delhi Capitals on 10.11.2020 (Tuesday). After IPL 2020, he is all set to be a part of the Australia Series but will be joining the team only for the Test Series. To regain full fitness, he will be rested for the ODI and T20 Internationals in Australia and won’t be flying with the rest of the team on 11th November.
After suffering a hamstring injury during IPL 2020 which is being played in UAE, he missed four matches. He sustained the injury during the game against Kings XI Punjab on 18th October. Despite being warned by Ravi Shastri against rushing the comeback and the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly asking him to look for long term benefits than the short-term goals, Rohit controversially returned to the captain’s position.
Previously from the sources in Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), we came to know that Rohit would not travel to Australia unless he cleared a fitness test conducted by Team India Physio Nitin Patel and the National Cricket Academy.
On Monday, the fitness update by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made it clear that Rohit Sharma has been playing for Mumbai Indians despite not being fit. But considering the fact that Virat Kohli won’t be available for as many as three Tests for personal reasons in January, Rohit Sharma has been added to the Test team.
After re-joining the team in the last league game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rohit Sharma in his post-match comments said that his hamstring injury is absolutely fine.
