The certainty looming around Rohit Sharma’s injury update is taking social media by a storm as IPL comes to a business end. In all this India Head Coach has now come out saying Rohit Sharma wasn’t included in the squad because he could injure himself again.
As we know last week when the Indian selectors announced India’s squad for the tour of Australia we saw a massive name was missing from all three formats, that name was of Rohit Sharma as his name was nowhere to be seen in all three squads.
BCCI did announce that Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma’s injuries will be assessed as the days progress. Ishant Sharma was associated with the Delhi Capitals played just one match after which he sustained an abdominal muscle tear whereas Rohit Sharma the skipper of Mumbai Indians sustained a hamstring injury during of the matches in the 2020 IPL.
Rohit Sharma Could Injure Himself Again – Ravi Shastri
In between all the drama and uncertainty, Ravi Shastri has finally delivered an update, according to him the Indian selectors refrained from including him the side as his injury looks serious which is why there is a possibility that he might just injure himself again in Australia.
“I have no say, neither I am a part of the selection. All I know is the medical report which says he could be in danger of injuring himself again,” Shastri said.
Ravi Shastri further mentioned how he has absolutely no say in any of this as the medical team of BCCI assess Rohit Sharma’s condition and directly report to BCCI. After which BCCI conveys the necessary reports to the selectors then a call on a player’s inclusion and exclusion is made.
“It’s being handled by the people in charge of the medical part of it. We don’t get involved in that. They have submitted a report to the selectors and they have gone about their business,” he added.
Earlier it was reported that BCCI was going to assess Rohit Sharma on Sunday, after which Nitin Patel the Mumbai Indians and Team India physio was going to provide an update of Rohit’s participation to the BCCI.
