Sourav Ganguly raises concern over Rohit Sharma’s fitness as he explains why Rohit hasn’t flown with the Indian team to Australia yet. Alley Sport brings you the news on Rohit Sharma’s fitness and BCCI’s latest updates.
Rohit isn’t 100% fit yet as per BCCI’s updates
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly made an update on Rohit Sharma’s fitness stating that Rohit is only 70% fit and not 100% fit yet. It means that Rohit Sharma played the final of IPL 2020 without regaining full fitness but went on to score 68 in the game. Rohit Sharma’s fitness has been a concern for the team for a while now and needs to be addressed soon.
Rohit picked up his hamstring injury in the middle of the tournament while playing against Kings XI and had to sit out for the next 4 games. He returned to the XI for the last league game and wasn’t fully fit yet as per BCCI updates. He wasn’t picked for the Australian tour at the beginning considering his fitness but soon he was added to the test team as Kohli was set to leave the tour after the first test at Adelaide.
Rohit did not travel to Australia with the Indian team
The Indian team for all the formats travelled to Australia few days back and Rohit did not travel with the team but injured Saha was on the flight. This raised many eyebrows and the questions were answered by Sourav that Rohit had to travel to NCA and undergo a fitness test meanwhile Saha isnt part of the white ball team and will be fit before the first test.
Ganguly also explained about the presence of Indian physio Dr. Nitin Patel in Dubai for the entire IPL and monitoring of the injuries of the players intensely. KL Rahul has been named as the vice captain for the white ball squads while it will be interesting to see if Ajinkya Rahane or Rohit gets the captaincy from Virat for the second test as Virat will be taking paternity leave.
Rohit Sharma has been in good nick after a fifth IPL trophy win captaining the Mumbai side. Indian team will miss the services of Rohit Sharma in the ODI and T20 formats and will be hoping that he passes the fitness test to make a comeback soon. Rohit Sharma’s Fitness is still in doubt as we contradicting statements from everywhere.
