India pacer Ishant Sharma has been ruled out of the 2015 World Cup due to a knee injury and will return to India early next week. Mohit Sharma, who is travelling in Australia with the team, is likely to take his place in the side.
ndia had better news regarding the fitness of batsman Rohit Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Rohit played only one ODI in the tri-series against Australia and England due to a hamstring niggle. A left-ankle injury had kept Bhuvneshwar out of the first three Tests in Australia and a recurrence of the injury meant that he played only two matches in the tri-series. Rohit has said he will play the warm-up games and Bhuvneshwar could take the field in Sunday’s warm-up match against Australia.
“I will be playing the warm-ups and am good to go,” Rohit said at a media interaction in Adelaide. “I had issues with my hamstring but over the past few days I have been working on it and recovered well thanks to the medical staff. Injuries are part of the game and out of your control. What I can control is my confidence and preparations ahead of the World Cup.”
