Team India opener Rohit Sharma will undergo mandatory Yo-Yo Test before making a return to the national team after he was ruled out of the Test and ODI series against New Zealand following a calf injury. Rohit Sharma had picked up the injury in the final T20I in New Zealand but had returned just in time for the IPL 2020.
Rohit Sharma, the limited-overs vice-captain, had a decent outing in the T20I series against New Zealand. He began the series with the paltry scores of 7, 8 but then went on to score 65 and notch up an unbeaten score of 60 in the consecutive matches.
Rohit Sharma: have to first go to the NCA and give my fitness test
Rohit Sharma recovered to full fitness before the lockdown was enforced in India. However, once things open up, he will have to visit the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, to give fitness test and make a return to the team.
“Before the lockdown happened, I was almost ready to play. That whole week was going to be my fitness test but that’s when the lockdown happened and I had to push back everything now. Once everything opens up, I have to first go to the centre (NCA) and give my fitness test and once I pass the fitness test I will be allowed to go and resume my duties with the team,” Rohit Sharma said in a chat on Facebook’s LaLiga page.
In normalcy, Rohit Sharma would have been leading record champions Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 at the moment. He has scored over 2700 runs in the shortest format at an average of 32.62 and is an integral part of team in the limited-overs.
