Recently, there has been another sad news for the Indian line up. Their major opener, Rohit Sharma was injured lately. And on that note, the Indian team management has decided not to risk him for India’s do-or-die game against England on 30th January. He will also be rested in the finals if India happens to win their last encounter and qualify for the finals.

Rohit Sharma was injured during India’s first encounter against Australia in Melbourne where he went onto score a splendid knock of 138 runs.

Recently an important source of the team said that the chances of Rohit playing the tri series is nil even if India happens to qualify for the finals. The World Cup is just a few days away and the team management does not want to risk a player of his class.

Also, after going through the MRI reports of Rohit Sharma, it was found that Rohit needed a week’s rest after which he can start with his training sessions. Also, Shikhar Dhawan is completely out of form and thus they do not want to risk Rohit in this tri-series as they have a World Cup to play in three weeks’ time.

Also, India has a warm up match on 8th and 10th February against Australia and Afghanistan which will serve as Rohit Sharma’s match fitness tests ahead of the World Cup tournament.

Rohit Sharma is indeed one of the most reliable batsmen in the Indian line up at the moment and surely he will be heavily relied upon in the World Cup for India’s success. Recently, he looked in good touch as he smashed a brilliant century in the very first game against Australia. This was indeed a great knock. He is also perhaps the most settled opening batsman of India at this point of time.
