Rohit Sharma suffers an injury ahead of the World Cup team announcement
Not exactly seven days before the announcement of India’s World Cup squad, Indian top-order batsman Rohit Sharma injured his right hamstring on the eve of Mumbai Indians’ Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Kings XI Punjab which makes his participation in the match in doubt.
It was the practice session at the Wankhede arena on Tuesday where Rohit was seen falling and after that gripping his right thigh and looked in serious discomfort.
Rohit Sharma seemed to have pulled his hamstring in the ground. He appeared to be in genuine distress and appeared to be extraordinary pain. The groups’ physio, Nitin Patel, dashed to the ground to go to the Mumbai’s captain. After a little treatment, Rohit was in a good place again after some time. Be that as it may, he limped towards the changing area and didn’t return to join the training session once more.
The seriousness of the damage isn’t known yet however it has reported that it could be a hamstring issue. Contingent upon whether it is a strain or tear, hamstring wounds can take between two to about a month and a half to recuperate. Accordingly, Indian team won’t be that tensed yet. But it would be a tremendous blow for the Mumbai Indians. After a moderate start, finally they were looking to come back to their rhythm in the last match. But the injury worry of their captain could fall them in a serious problem in the upcoming matches.
This is the second injury concern for the Mumbai Indians as well as India National Cricket Team. As earlier at the beginning of the IPL, Jasprit Bumrah also harmed himself in the match against the Delhi Capitals. The pacer injured his left arm while trying to dive to his left to stop the ball. Things looked terrible that time. But the young pace sensation recovered well in time and played the very next match to give some relief to his fans.
Mumbai Indians will host Kings XI Punjab at Wankhede tonight in an important match to rise up in the point table.
