Rohit Sharma advised cutting weight by 5-6 KG to reduce stress on hamstring and knee: Team India’s new white ball skipper Rohit Sharma has been advised to cut down on his body weight by around 5-6 KG by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) experts. The cricketer has responded to the advice pretty quickly and has begun his fitness regime to get in better shape.
Sharma missed the ongoing India tour of South Africa due to his hamstring injury. The cricketer sustained the injury a few days prior to India’s departure to South Africa. He couldn’t pose himself fit for the ODI series as well.
The trainers at the NCA have put up a solid training program for India’s white-ball skipper to regain his fitness and reduce excess weight from his hamstring and knee. He is currently at the NCA and is undergoing rigorous training with the plans put forth for him.
Interestingly, Rahul also debuted with Test Captaincy during the 2nd Test Match against South Africa as Virat Kohli was ruled out of the match due to an upper back spasm.
