Its been two days since the Indian selectors announced the squads for all three formats and we still have no clarity over Rohit Sharma’s participation in the tour. In the wake of it, Mumbai Indians physio Nitin Patel who is also Team India’s physio has sent out a detailed report to BCCI about Rohit Sharma’s injury status.
In the absence of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul was named the limited-overs side’s vice-captain but BCCI after announcing the squads said that they will continue to monitor Rohit Sharma and will be added to the squad after there’s more clarity regarding his injury.
Even the likes of Sunil Gavaskar has asked for more clarity regarding Rohit’s injury as just hours after the Indian selectors announced the squad, the social media handle of Mumbai Indians uploaded a video of Rohit Sharma practising his batting in Abu Dhabi.
India Physio Submitted A Detailed Report Stating Rohit Sharma Won’t be available for Selection
Now according to a report in The Times of India, Nitin Patel, the physiotherapist of the Indian team and the Mumbai Indians franchise, had submitted a report on the injury of Rohit Sharma, citing that the opener was injured and would require rest for two to three weeks to recover. In such a scenario, the batsman’s batting session has only made things more confusing.
“Patel had submitted a detailed fitness report of every player. It’s a normal procedure where the Indian team physio informs the board and selection committee about which player is fit and which player is not,” BCCI source said.
The report further stated that Rohit Sharma will not be available for selection due to injury as he would require two to three weeks to recover from the hamstring injury.
“The selectors were informed that Rohit will not be available for selection due to injury. He even submitted two expert doctors’ advice who both said Rohit needs rest for two to three weeks,” the source told the news outlet,” it added.
