New Delhi: BCCI has announced Team India for the Australian tour on Monday. Rohit Sharma's name is missing from India's ODI, T20 and Test team. He was hurt in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and that is why he has not played the last two matches. Lokesh Rahul has been appointed as vice-captain in his place in T20 and ODIs.
However, as soon as the team was announced late at night, Mumbai Indians made two tweets in which Rohit Sharma is seen fit. Mumbai has also shared a video of captain Rohit Sharma, in which he is seen practising batting on the net. The first match on the Australian tour will be played exactly one month from today on 27 November. That is, Rohit Sharma had a month to recover.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has issued a statement saying that Rohit Sharma's injury will be constantly monitored. Rohit had a hamstring injury last week but he looks perfectly fit in the video shared by Mumbai Indians (MI). As soon as Rohit's practice video arrives, fans on social media have flared up on the BCCI.
