A lot has been said and speculated about Rohit Sharma’s fitness. The MI skipper missed the last few matches owing to a hamstring injury. He was also not selected for the India tour of Australia post this. However, his injury has created a lot of confusion
After announcing the squads, the BCCI had stated that their medical team would continue to monitor Rohit and senior pacer Ishant Sharma’s fitness. But while Ishant is back at the National Cricket Academy for his rehabilitation programme, Rohit is still with the Mumbai Indians squad in UAE. And as if that was not enough, the franchise raised a number of eyebrows by announcing that the batsman has returned to training.
Sehwag Question’s the Fitness of Rohit Sharma and Criticizes The Selectors
Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag is not happy with the selectors’ decisions of not picking Rohit after this uncertain update on his injury.
“During my playing days, when Srikkanth was the chairman of selectors, if a player was injured on the day of selection then he was not picked. But this is a long tour and Rohit Sharma is an important player, so if he has not been picked keeping in mind his injury status today then I guess it is a bit harsh on him,”Advertisement

He further added that Rohit himself created confusion by taking part in the net sessions even after having a serious injury.
“Even I have no update on Rohit Sharma’s injury status. The media should ask this question. Earlier it was told that he is unwell, if he is unwell then what is he doing inside the stadium. He was seen during both matches. If he is unwell then he should be on bed rest to recover as soon as possible. So, clearly he is not unwell,” Sehwag said.
“In that case the franchise should give a statement about the nature of his injury. A video was shared by Mumbai Indians of him practicing, which clearly shows he is trying to get back to fitness but there needs to be a statement. These days you don’t even need a statement, he has his social media where he can just put a line about his condition,”Advertisement
