Rohit Sharma’s injury has become a subject of dialogue after the Indian opener wasn’t included within the squad for the upcoming tour of Australia. While there has been no clarity or statement from his IPL franchise Mumbai Indians about the character of his injury, the BCCI had stated within the team’s official announcement that Rohit and fast bowler Ishant Sharma would be supervised by the medical team of the board.
Talking about the difficulty , former India opener Virender Sehwag said that it had been a touch harsh to not select Rohit supported the present state of his injury, given the very fact that it’s an extended tour.
“During my playing days, when Srikanth was the chairman of selectors, if a player was injured on the day of selection, he wasn’t selected. But it’s an extended tour and Rohit Sharma is a crucial player, so if he’s not picked today keeping in mind his injury situation, i feel it’s a touch harsh on him, ”Sehwag said on Tuesday. The post was done on Cricbuzz during a video.
When asked about whether there should be any statement of Mumbai Indians, Sehwag said that there’s a requirement for more clarity on the character of Rohit’s injury.
“I haven’t any idea about Rohit Sharma’s injury status. The media should ask this question. it had been previously reported that he’s unwell, if he’s unwell then what’s he doing inside the stadium. He was seen during both matches. If he’s unwell, he should get on bed rest to recover as soon as possible. So, clearly he’s not unwell, ”said Sehwag.
“In that case, the franchise must make a press release about the character of its injury. A video was shared by Mumbai Indians practicing him, which clearly shows that he’s trying to urge back to fitness, but a press release is required . you do not even need a press release lately , he has his own social media where he can put a line about his position. “
KL Rahul has been named vice-captain for the series-led limited overs. Rohit is that the designated vice-captain in limited-overs cricket for India.
