Indian Cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar calls for transparency by BCCI for the Indian cricket fans regarding Rohit’s injury. Rohit has been kept out from the ODI, Test and the T20 squad for the Indian Tour of Australia this November.
BCCI also attached a statement with squads that said:
“The BCCI Medical Team will continue to monitor the progress of Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma.”
While the Mumbai Indians management has been telling consistently that Rohit is doing well and is recovering fast from his hamstring injury. They even released a video that showed Rohit batting in full flow in the nets.
This when Sunil Gavaskar called for a clear answer from BCCI regarding the senior player’s health on Star Sports:
“I don’t know, I’m not on any of these public media but I was shown something about him practicing at the nets for Mumbai Indians. So I don’t know what kind of injury it is. Because if the injury was serious he wouldn’t even be padded up. So we’re talking about a tour that starts at the end of November for T20s and one-dayers but the Test matches start around 17th of December which is a month and a half away. And if he’s practicing in the nets for Mumbai Indians then honestly don’t know what kind of injury it is.
“And I think a little bit of transparency, a little bit of openness about what actually is the problem with him will help everybody. Because the Indian cricket fan deserves to know more than anything else. The franchises I understand, they don’t want to give their hand away because they’re trying to win the game, they don’t want to give the opposition any psychological advantage but we’re talking about an Indian team. Even Mayank Agarwal for example, Mayank Agarwal has not been playing… I think for the Indian cricket fan… they ought to know what is happening to two of their key players,” said Sunil Gavaskar.
