India captain Rohit Sharma is poised to be ready for the last two T20 internationals against West Indies considering the records. The right-hander had to pull back pain while hitting 11 of 5 distributions in the 3rd T20 I, and he returned to the dressing room and held his back.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is expected to be available for the last two T20 internationals against West Indies if reports are to be believed. The right-hander had to retire injured when he hit on 11 of 5 deliveries in the third T20I and he went back to the dressing room holding his back. The BCCI confirmed on Twitter that Rohit had a back spasm and the medical team had been working on his progress.
After winning Game Three against the West Indies, Rohit gave an update on his injury in the post-match conference after which he hoped to recover in time for the last two T20Is.
"It's okay for now. We have a few days until the next game, hopefully it should be okay (his injury),” he had said. The 35-year-old played a game-winning inning with a 44-ball 64 in the first T20I against West Indies and he has a big role to play in the lead. However, with the Asian Cup and T20 World Cup 2022 looming, Team India management could be very cautious when it comes to Rohit's fitness. "Rohit will be available for the final two games on Saturday and Sunday".
India have the option of benching Ishan Kishan as an opener if they want to rest Rohit for the last two T20Is, while there could be a case of who leads the team. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya have both been leading India lately and it could be a big decision if India decides to rest Rohit.
Members from India and the West Indies are granted US visas
Meanwhile, U.S. visas have been issued to members of the Indian and West Indian squads, including supporting personnel, who have hitherto been at risk. Intervention by the Guyana government helped diplomatically, while six players have already reached Miami on a scheduled flight. The remaining players are expected to arrive on Thursday evening (August 4), with the fourth game scheduled to take place on August 6.
