Rohit Sharma Will Be Assessed On Sunday: BCCI

But as time progressed there is an injury update on Rohit Sharma as the BCCI has confirmed that Rohit Sharma will be assessed on the coming Sunday after which they will decide on his participation in the Australian tour.

“Rohit will be assessed tomorrow and a call will be taken after that on whether he is good to go. As is the case with hamstring injuries, the real challenge is the sprints and the acceleration and deceleration process will be the focus to understand if he has recovered fully or will need a little more time,” the functionary said.

Since Rohit Sharma in suffering through a hamstring injury, it becomes really important to see if Rohit faces any issue while running. If he does face an issue in his muscles then he will be deemed unfit whereas if he doesn’t then a suitable call will be taken on the latter’s participation.

“The hamstring muscles come into play when a person needs to suddenly run a quick single or needs to stop fast and turn at the non-striker’s end for a double. While you accelerate at the beginning of the sprint, you decelerate when you need to stop and turn. This is when the focus is 100 per cent on the functionality of the hamstring muscles. So, if you have recovered completely, you wouldn’t have an issue in either acceleration or deceleration,” he added.
