The lack of transparency over Rohit Sharma’s injury which has led to his omission from India’s squads for the upcoming tour of Australia has raised a number of eyebrows. On Monday, the BCCI announced the ODI, T20I and Test squads for the tour and Rohit Sharma was not named in any one of them.

While releasing the squads, the BCCI stated that its medical team would continue to monitor Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma. Rohit Sharma is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury that he had sustained during the clash against Kings XI Punjab on October 18.

Last week, Mumbai Indians in a statement gave an update on the injury and stated that their skipper is recovering well while hinting that he is close to returning to action. Thus, BCCI’s decision of leaving him out of the squads surprised many. And Mumbai Indians didn’t take long to further add to the confusion.

Just moments after the BCCI announced the squad, the defending IPL champions announced on their social media pages that Rohit Sharma was back training again, leaving everyone utterly surprised. Following their announcement, former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar also called for transparency about Rohit’s injury.

Fans sense foul play:

With little clarity over Rohit Sharma’s injury and his omission from the India squads, the fans took to social media to express their surprise over the same. Not only that, they have also targeted Virat Kohli, saying that the India skipper was responsible for Rohit Sharma’s omission.

The fans once again talked about the alleged rift between Rohit and Kohli that surfaced last year while stating that not all is well between the two superstars. Some went even as far as calling Kohli selfish while saying that the rift is the reason behind Rohit’s omission.
