Head coach of Indian cricket team Ravi Shastri believes that Rohit Sharma should not go to Australia without getting fully fit. He also said that in response to no selection, its entire responsibility is on the medical team’s report and physiotherapist. He said, ‘Why is Rohit not in the team? I do not know about this. I do not know what is written in the medical report.
It is noteworthy that Rohit Sharma’s name was missing from the teams of the three formats selected for the tour of Australia. He recently had to leave the field due to hamstring in an IPL-13 match. He has not played for Mumbai since then, but on the day the BCCI announced the teams, he was seen practicing on the net from that day onwards. Let me tell you that KL Rahul has been made the vice-captain in place of Rohit in the limited overs team.
In an interview to Times Now, he said on the practice of Rohit – there is nothing more frustrating for a player to get injured. Sometimes you know, you want to get out of that and try, see how soon you can come back. You defy problems and you want to play, but only you can know yourself whether you are 100% fit or not.
He said, ‘I myself have been a cricketer. I finished my career in 1991 when I moved back to Australia, where I should not have gone. If I had taken a break of 3-4 months and returned fit, I could have played five more years for India. That’s why I speak from experience. This is the case. I wanted to go. The doctors did not let me go. This is greed. Rohit Sharma is an important player and he should not go on tour without being fully fit.
Pollard says, when will Rohit return?
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians caretaker captain Kieran Pollard said on Saturday that the team’s regular captain, Rohit Sharma, is recovering from a left leg muscle strain (hamstring injury). He will be back in the team soon. Rohit’s left leg muscle was stretched in the IPL match against Kings XI Punjab. Pollard said after the match to Delhi Capitals, “Rohit is getting better and hopefully he will be back soon.”
