new Delhi: Former Indian team batsman Sanjay Manjrekar has said that the situation is not clear yet about Rohit Sharma’s fitness. Rohit was not selected in any of the three teams on the tour of Australia. However, Rohit has been included in the Test team later. He has been rested in ODIs and T20 series.
Rohit Sharma had been complaining of a muscle strain in the IPL, but the BCCI is still quiet about his injury while the rest of his injured players have been informed.
Sanjay Manjrekar said, ‘The situation is not clear at all about Rohit’s fitness. I am sure that BCCI will have a stand on this and so on Rohit. When people do not get information, then a period of speculation starts. So, I don’t know what is going on ‘.
After the injury, Rohit Sharma played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL. He also gave the team a fifth IPL title, scoring a half-century in the final.
After this, BCCI included Rohit in the Test team while giving approval to paternity leave to captain Virat Kohli. Kohli will return home after the first match of the four-match Test series against Australia.
Manjrekar (Sanjay Manjrekar) feels that four-five players should get a chance to tour Australia due to injury or any other reason.
He said, ‘When the team is announced for a long tour like Australia, we think this team will play. But as things happen we will know that by the end of the tour the players who are in India will be playing in Australia ‘.
He said, ‘I have no doubt that Rohit will play if he gets fit. Suryakumar Yadav will also get a replacement in the event of injury to a player, as is usually the case on tour.
Suryakumar scored 480 runs this time in the IPL and became the architect of the team’s victory. The selection committee was severely criticized by many for not including him in the tour of Australia.
