As usual, Rohit seemed close to his best and executed attacking strokes against both pace and spin. Interestingly his footwork looked impressive against the fast bowler and it is now understood that he might just feature in the playoffs matches leading the Mumbai Indians.
Meanwhile, Rohit was also omitted from India’s squad for the tour to Australia. The medical report suggested that the batsman is at risk of aggravating his injury if he isn’t cautious. Several reports revealed that it is highly improbable that Rohit will play any more matches in IPL 2020.
The physios are closely monitoring the progress of Rohit and only once he is wholly fit he will be permitted to take part in matches. In his absence, Kieron Pollard is doing a commendable job and leading MI in the ongoing IPL season.
