The stand-in skipper of Indian National Cricket Team, Rohit Sharma who is going to lead the blues in the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh has recently given an injury scare to his team ahead of the campaign opener. The explosive opener of the Indian squad Sharma who has been sweating hard in the nets for the past few days suddenly left the recent training session after hitting hard on the thigh.
The Hitman was practicing with batting coach Vikram Rathour and Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Seneviratne in the nets and suddenly got hurt with a fast delivery just above his knee. The 32-year-old experienced player then quietly left the ground and didn’t even take part in the further sessions. This came as a big shock for the Indian cricket fans as Rohit Sharma is a crucial player for men in blue in the upcoming T20I opener against Bangladeshi Tigers and if he will rule out of the forthcoming series then the hosting team could pay the heavy price for this.
However, the official cricket authorities have not confirmed anything yet on the injury of Rohit Sharma. Whole Indian T20I squad is just keeping the fingers crossed for Sharma’s health ahead of the grand tournament at the home soil. It will be interesting to see whether Sharma will lead his side in the T20I opener or not.
The star Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for the upcoming T20I series against Bangladesh. As a result, destructive opener, as well as the vice-captain of the hosting team Rohit Sharma, will captain the blues in the shortest format. The first T20I clash between India and Bangladesh is scheduled to be held at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Sunday.
The men in blue will start their prestigious cricketing campaign against Bangladesh with a three-match T20I series starting from November 3rd till November 10th. This will be then followed by a two-match Test series between both the squads from November 14th till November 26th. Notably, the last Test encounter between both the countries will be a day-night Test at historic Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
