Former India National Cricket Team player Mohammad Kaif is hopeful that the injury suffered by captain Rohit Sharma is not very serious and he is also hoping to see Rohit lead the side in the remainder of the five-match T20I series against the West Indies National Cricket Team.
India National Cricket Team captain Rohit Sharma suffered a back injury during the third T20I against West Indies during the run-chase and the Indian captain got retired hurt at the score of 11.
He copped a back injury while playing an awkward-looking shot off the right-arm pacer Alzarri Joseph’s delivery. After Rohit looked uncomfortable the Indian physio Kamlesh came onto the field and after consultation for a few minutes, Rohit decided to walk off the field.
“Team India captain Rohit Sharma has a back spasm. The BCCI medical team is monitoring his progress,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) issued an update on Twitter
Also, Rohit Sharma, during the post-match presentation ceremony, had given a major update on his injury. He said:
“It’s okay at the moment. We’ve got a few days till the next game, hopefully it should be okay (his injury).”
