He is going to feature for India A side in the first of three four day matches against New Zealand A.

Rohit has been an integral part of the Indian limited overs set up in the last half-decade or so. He has been so important that many are requesting and pleading to BCCI to make him the full-time captain of the Indian limited-overs side ahead of regular skipper Virat Kohli.

Rohit was not added to the roster when the team was announced earlier. But through his rich form in the limited overs format, the selectors decided to give him a go and prove his worth in the India A’s four-day test matches against New Zealand A. If he performs well then he might be taking the place of Hanuma Vihari in the senior playing eleven.

Vihari scored a fine fifty in bowling friendly English conditions on his test debut at The Oval cricket ground. That’s why he is also a strong contender for the Australia tests. And that’s why many are questioning selectors’ national team selection process.

“If you look at Rohit Sharma after 10-12 years in international years and tell him that one game will decide whether you play in the Australia test, one game should not be the criteria. With players like Rohit, you either play them or don’t play them,” Jadeja said in the Cricbuzz Live program.

Zaheer has guessed that the workload will be too much on Rohit and he might consider resting himself. “Look, Rohit Sharma misses the first T20I. It’s pretty hard. Travel does make you tired and take that energy out. Because he hasn’t played in Australia, it is very difficult to get your head around,” Zaheer Khan was quoted.
