Rohit Sharma’s fitness has become a matter of concern for India. After missing many series due to injury, he again sustained an injury during the third T20I against West Indies. He got retired hurt due to a spasm in the back muscles while playing. Till then, he scored 11 runs off five balls only.
With two more matches to go in the series, Rohit Sharma will be eager to make a comeback. Especially ahead of the major tournaments, Rohit Sharma’s fitness is going to be pivotal. Now, regarding that, former Pakistan spinner, Danish Kaneria came up with a suggestion for the Indian skipper.
“The Indian team desperately needs Rohit Sharma in both the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup.” – Danish Kaneria
Speaking on his Youtube channel, Kaneria said that Rohit Sharma needs to get back to his full fitness as early as possible. He said, “As soon as Rohit Sharma hit the pull shot and sent the ball towards the boundary, that pain could be clearly seen in his face. I know as a player that he was in a lot of pain.”
He also added that ahead of the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup, India needs Rohit Sharma at all costs with full fitness. “The most important thing at this time is that he should keep his fitness in mind, even if it requires him to rest in two matches. The Indian team desperately needs Rohit Sharma in both the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup.” Kaneria added.
Former Pakistan spinner also suggested Rohit for taking a rest in the upcoming two T20Is against West Indies. He also suggested that players are there for captaincy duties if he misses those matches. “So even if he rests, the team has many match-winners and captaincy options like Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, or Rishabh Pant,” Kaneria concluded. Two more matches of this series are going to happen on 6 and 7 August 2022.
