T20WC: Rohit Sharma Dobutfull for Semis; Staff to Asses Availability Post Injury
Skipper Rohit Sharma on Tuesday resumed his training sessions after sustaining a blow to his right forearm. In the training session ahead of the semifinal, Rohit batted in the nets and was facing a throwdown. As per reports a short ball jumped off the length area and hit his right forearm.
Several videos of the incident went viral on social media where Rohit was visibly in pain. He took some rest and applied an ice pack on the injured arm and resumed the training. A source has confirmed that Rohit was good and would rest for a while and the Indian support staff would assess the cricketer and update whether or not he is on board.
The return of the 35-year-old has shunned away a big scare that shadowed the men in blue as they prep to face off Jos Buttler’s side in the World Cup knockout clash after 35 years. The last time they met was during the 1987 World Cup semis at the Wankhede stadium.
India will take on England in the second semi-final here on Thursday while Pakistan and New Zealand will lock horns in the first semi-final on Wednesday in Sydney.
