‘At the moment, it’s…’: Rohit Sharma provides injury update after retiring hurt | Cricket

India captain Rohit Sharma was seriously injured on Tuesday when he walked off the field and retired from batting. Rohit hit 11 of 5 balls, hitting a six and a four before pulling a muscle. As Rohit was about to strike, the camera showed Indian physio Kamlesh Jain running to the ground and after a long discussion the skipper walked away with his back. It looked as if Rohit had done something to his back while playing the third ball from the over, which he shoved in for four. Rohit danced down the wicket to Alzarri Joseph.

The BCCI quickly released an update on Rohit’s injury, confirming that it was, in fact, a back spasm. “Team India captain Rohit Sharma has back cramps. The BCCI medical team is monitoring his progress,” it tweeted. Despite Rohit’s absence, Indian batters cheered in their pursuit of 165 and won the game by seven wickets, but all eyes were on the post-game presentation, where Rohit finally gave an update on the extent of the injury and whether it will help him in the game. doubt for the rest of the series…and probably more.

The whole country can breathe a sigh of relief when he said: “At the moment it is okay. We have a few days until the next game, hopefully it will be okay.”

Rohit watched from the locker room as India led 2-1 in the series. The experiment to open with Suryakumar Yadav finally clicked when the Indian batter played an epic strike and scored half a century. His 76 out 44 run with 8 fours and four sixes, along with handy innings from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, led India to a comfortable victory.

Although Surya was sacked in the 15th over with just over 30 needed, followed by Hardik Pandya’s wicket three overs later, Pant came to the rescue and scored a rapid fire 33 from 26 balls, including the winning runs – a limit from Obed McCoy. With this, India bounced back from its sloppy defeat in the second ODI, and Rohit couldn’t be happier. He credited the bowlers with limiting the Windies to 164 when they would get a lot more at some point, and praised the Suryakumar show.

“How we bowled in the middle overs was crucial. I thought we were using the conditions well. Using the variations well. It was very clinical how we chased. Watching from the outside I didn’t feel there was much risk taking, a lot of calm in the middle. Surya hit brilliantly, good cooperation there with Iyer. The field had something in it for the bowlers, not an easy target. It was important to pick the right shots, right balls on such a ground.” said the skipper.
