Rohit Sharma’s exemption for the side was a huge shock for the fans and started making speculations. Soon after the release of the squads’ Hitman was seen in nets practicing for Mumbai Indians.
Rohit had suffered a hamstring injury during Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians match which went for double super overs. Rohit missed a couple of games stating the injury but came back into the game before the playoffs. However, the BCCI president said,” our medical team is in contact with Rohit Sharma and we are also wanting Rohit to play in the Australia tour.”

Rohit Sharma Updates on his injury:
Rohit Sharma giving light on the situation said,” I don’t know what was going on, to be honest, and what all people were talking about.”
“I told the Mumbai Indias that I can go into the field as it is the short format of the game. Once, I made clear in my mind, then it was just focusing on what I needed to do.”
“The injury is fine now. I have started the process of getting it nice and want to become 100% sure before the longest format. I don’t want to leave a single stone unturned for the tour and that’s probably the reason behind me at NCA.”
“To be honest, for me it was not a concern what x, y, or z are talking like whether he could make it to Australia,” Rohit added.
“Once the injury happened, the next two days I was just featuring out, what to do in the next 10 days. Whether I could take the field or not.”
“For me, I need to make sure that I’m fit. I was not concerned about anyone or what people are thinking. I want to make it to the records that I was constantly in touch with BCCI and Mumbai Indians regarding the injury.”
