Aus vs Ind: Rohit Sharma declared fit, to fly to Australia

Published Date:

India’s star opener Rohit Sharma was declared fit by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on Friday. Picking up a hamstring niggle during IPL 2020, Sharma was side-lined from India’s tour down under. As a result, he missed the white ball rubbers and was also considered to be out of the Test series. However, after being declared match-fit by NCA, Rohit is expected to arrive in Australia on December 13.

As quoted by PTI, a BCCI official commented, “Rohit has cleared the fitness Test and will soon be flying out to Australia.”

While his fitness was overseen by NCA director Rahul Dravid, Rohit will also undergo a week of training after arriving in Australia. On arriving in Sydney, he will have to be under mandatory 14 days quarantine before he can kick off his training.

Rohit was benched for four games after sustaining the in the 13th edition of the IPL in Dubai this year. However, after his initial exclusion from the side, the BCCI informed that Rohit will be added in the Test squad. His fitness was being monitored by BCCI.

In a press release on November 9, BCCI cleared, “The BCCI Medical Team has been monitoring Rohit Sharma’s fitness and has briefed All-India Senior Selection Committee on the same. In consultation with Mr Sharma, it has been decided to rest him for the ODIs and T20Is in Australia to regain full fitness and he has been included in India’s Test squad for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.”

Leading Mumbai Indians to a victory in the final, Rohit flew back to India instead of travelling to Australia with the squad. BCCI issued yet another release after that saying, “He is presently undergoing rehabilitation at the NCA. Mr Rohit Sharma’s next assessment will be conducted on December 11th following which the BCCI will have clarity on his participation in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia.”
