Rohit Sharma’s come back in the team has created quite a chaos among the cricketing fraternity and fans. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the squads for the Australia tour last week but surprisingly Rohit Sharma was not named in any of the Squad for the tour as he was suffering from a hamstring injury. Not just this but he had also missed last few matches for Mumbai Indians. Kieron Pollard led the team in his absence.
Rohit Sharma made his come back on Tuesday against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He was injured on October 18 while playing against Kings XI Punjab. Due to this injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) has not included his name in the squads for the tour of Australia.
But Rohit Sharma proved the BCCI’s decision wrong by returning on the field on Tuesday against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Also, he was looking all fine while playing against SRH. He had not faced any sort of trouble while playing.
While talking in the post-match conference he also said that his hamstring injury is ‘absolutely fine’.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma’s return has created chaos among the cricketing fraternity and fans. While all the cricket analyst and experts need more clarity on this matter, fans are questioning selectors for not naming Rohit Sharma in the squad for the tour of Australia. In the meantime former Indian skipper, Dilip Vengsarkar has also joined the discussion.
Vengsarkar has expressed his surprise over the veterans’ return on the field after being declared unfit for the tour of Australia.
“It’s intriguing that Rohit Sharma, the most accomplished batsman of Team India, who was only a few days ago declared unfit to tour Australia by the Indian team’s physio (Nitin Patel) and hence not selected for the trip, is playing and leading MI in the IPL,” Vengsarkar was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
Dilip Vengsarkar didn’t seem impressed with the recent events. He even asked if the IPL is more important to Rohit Sharma than a national duty. He also asked BCCI to take action on this matter.
“Now, the question here is, is the IPL more important to him than playing for India? Is the club more important than playing for the nation for him? Will the BCCI take a call on this? Or is it that the BCCI physio faltered in diagnosing Rohit’s injury correctly,” he said.
