Indian Cricket Team opener Rohit Sharma is all set for the last two matches against Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Melbourne, where the team is practicing for the third Test in Sydney.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday posted the pictures of Indian hitman Rohit Sharma training on its Instagram handle with the caption saying: “The Hitman is here and has just got the engine started!” Rohit Sharma has joined the rest of the team on Wednesday after completing his quarantine on Sunday.
Rohit will be seen playing the last two Tests in Sydney and Brisbane. However, his participation will depend on the team’s medical staff management.
The right-handed batsman had injured his hamstring during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 and although he returned to the field to lead Mumbai to a record fifth IPL title, he didn’t travel with the team to Australia subsequently.
After captain Virat Kohli rued a lack of clarity over Rohit’s availability for the Tests, BCCI revealed Rohit had been with his ailing father and subsequently moved to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for rehabilitation.
