Apart from this, the injured Ishant Sharma has not been given a place in Test cricket. Regarding the selection of these two players, the BCCI has said that Rohit Sharma and Inshat Sharma are currently on recovery.
And until the fitness of these two players is reviewed, then they will have to stay out of the team. On the other hand, if Rohit and Ishant fit before the Australia tour, then they will definitely be a part of the Indian team.
