Australia’s tour of India: The Indian team is currently on a tour of Australia, where the Test series is to be played after the ODI and T20 series starting December 17. The first match of the four-match Test series will be the Day-Night Test, which will be played with a pink ball. This is good news for the Indian team. Team opener Rohit Sharma has recovered from injury and has also passed a fitness test. He will leave for Australia on December 14.
Opener Rohit Sharma had to move to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) after suffering a hamstring injury during the Indian Premier League. Doctors have long since declared him fit. The batsman arrived at the NCA in Bengaluru on November 19 and took a fitness test on Friday, December 11. Rohit Sharma has passed this test and is now fully fit to visit Australia.
Speaking to news agency AI, sources familiar with the developments said that the batsman is fit for the toughness of international cricket. Sources said, “He has passed the fitness test and future action (his game) will be decided by the BCCI and the selection committee. “The BCCI informed Rohit of his decision to join the team for the Test series against Australia, as he was initially ruled out of the tour due to a hamstring injury.
A press release issued by the BCCI on November 9 said that the medical team was monitoring Rohit Sharma’s fitness. The selection committee has also been informed. This is the reason why Rohit Sharma was out of the ODI and T20 series, but was selected in the Test series. However, Rohit Sharma will play four Tests for India in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy or travel to Australia for the last two Tests. It will be decided soon.
