While international cricket takes its baby steps back to a full-fledged return, some of the prominent international players are still out of action. India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma is one of those, who has remained out of the 22 yards since January. Rohit Sharma took to his official Twitter handle and revealed what he misses during lockdown other than playing cricket.
The COVID-19-enforced break suspended cricket for more than four months. England and West Indies resumed playing it by engaging in a three-match Test series, beginning on the 8th of July behind closed doors.
As far as India is concerned, with the cases still on the rise, several parts are under lockdown. While the Indian players will partake in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the BCCI will likely hold no training camp for them.
Meanwhile, on his official Twitter handle, Rohit Sharma said in response to a question that other than playing cricket, he misses meeting his friends during the lockdown.
The 33-year-old toured New Zealand earlier this year along with the Indian team and could play only in the T20 series. The right-handed batsman sustained an injury to his left calf, leading him to miss the ODI and Test series which the tourists lost comprehensively.
Below is Rohit Sharma’s response via a video:

India’s limited-overs vice-captain will return to lead Mumbai Indians in the IPL, slated to take place in the UAE from the 19th of September.
Mumbai Indians are also the defending champions, who won their fourth title by beating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by one run. The extravaganza was postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
