Rohit Sharma is currently training at National Cricket Academy (NCA) to achieve full fitness before the Test series against Australia. The Indian batsman is not part of the ODI and T20I side for the Australia tour. Rohit injured his hamstring during the recently concluded IPL and was omitted by BCCI from the Indian squad.
A few weeks later Rohit returned to the field and questions were raised upon the Indian selectors. Now Rohit is doing strength and conditioning work at NCA in Bengaluru to be fully fit for the 4 Test series against Australia.
I Was Constantly Communicating With BCCI About The Injury- Rohit Sharma
Now Rohit has finally spoken in detail about his injury which became a major discussion point. He revealed that his hamstring is feeling fine which is a good sign for team India. The 33-year-old added that he wanted to clear his mind by getting fully fit before playing Test matches.
“Hamstring is feeling absolutely fine. Just started the process of getting it nice and strong. Before I play the longer format, I needed to be clear in mind that there is no stone left unturned. That’s probably the reason I’m at the NCA”, Rohit Sharma told PTI.
Plus Rohit Sharma made it clear that while being in UAE he was constantly in touch with BCCI. The MI skipper was also communicating with physios of his side and was surprised with the way his injury concerns became so complicated for everyone.
“I don’t know what was going on, to be honest, and what all were people talking about. But let me put this on record, I was constantly communicating with the BCCI and Mumbai Indians”, Rohit said.
“So I thought if I get to work on my body for 25 days, I can probably go and play the Test matches. So it was an easy decision for me and I don’t know why it became so complicated for others”, he added.
Meanwhile, Rohit also confirmed that when he started recovering he decided to take the field for MI during the playoffs. He was confident that he could take perform and also told his side that in case he feels any discomfort he won’t be taking any part in the matches.
“I told them (MI) that I think I will be okay to play just before playoffs. If there is any discomfort, I won’t be playing the playoffs”, Rohit Sharma said on his injury.
Furthermore, Indian fans will be hoping that the star batsman gets completely fit in time for the Test series that will begin on December 17. With Virat Kohli missing the last 3 Test it is imperative that Rohit is part of the Indian side during the challenging series against Australia.
