The injured Indian captain emphasized the significance of players returning fully fit after lengthy stays at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in light of India’s defeat in the second ODI.
While discussing Team India’s sporadic injuries, an injured Rohit Sharma quickly cut a frustrated figure after almost pulling off a heist in the series decider against Bangladesh by playing a blinder of a knock.
Rohit, the veteran opener and captain of India, batted at number nine because of a thumb injury he suffered on Wednesday during India’s crucial match against Bangladesh.
It happened when Bangladeshi Anamul Haque was trying to catch in the second over of the hosts’ innings, which was bowled by pacer Mohammed Siraj.
In the wake of Rohit’s bizarre injury, the Team India team coached by Rahul Dravid selected former skipper Virat Kohli to open the innings alongside senior batter Shikhar Dhawan.
The injured skipper went out to bat as India was on the verge of losing the series and revived the innings.
Notwithstanding, Rohit’s effective thump went to no end as Bangladesh edged past India by 5 races to get the ODI series.
Rohit spent a lot of time talking to former cricketer Anjum Chopra about players getting hurt after passing fitness tests at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
Team India will be without Rohit and Deepak Chahar in the third One-Day International against Bangladesh due to injuries.
“I mean there are certainly a couple of injury concerns. We must attempt to solve the problem. I have no idea what it is exactly.
“It’s important to understand that when they come for India, they need to be a 100%, in fact more than 100%,” Rohit said after India were defeated in Dhaka on Wednesday by a determined Bangladesh team.
“We need to try and monitor those guys.”
At the ICC World T20 2022, India did not have the services of veteran all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja or pacer Jasprit Bumrah.
Chahar and Washington Sundar have also spent a lot of time in rehab at the NCA.
After India’s defeat in the second one-day international, head coach Dravid confirmed that three Indian players are out of the Bangladesh series.
India’s Rohit-led team was without newly acquired pacer Kuldeep Sen on Wednesday.
“It is something we must examine. We must also meet with our team at home at the NCA to try to keep an eye on their workload.
That is something that needs our attention.
We can’t bear the cost of folks coming in here half-fit and addressing the country.
There’s colossal pride and distinction in addressing the nation and on the off chance that they’re not adequately fit, it’s not great.
Having said that, Rohit continued, “We just need to get to the bottom of it and discover exactly what is the reason behind this.”
