Rohit Sharma hit by a delivery of Jasprit Bumrah on Day 1 of India’s tour match against Leicestershire
It was a great moment for Indian cricket fans as they watched two Indian stars compete in the team’s tour match against Leicestershire XI. Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna pitched for Leicestershire against the likes of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill who opened the at bat for India in the touring match. Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara will also play for the hosts against the Indian team as Rahul Dravid’s divisions warm up for the rescheduled test match against England.
Rohit Sharma managed to score 25 runs before doing a pull shot to end up at Roman Walker.
But before that, Rohit was in a difficult position as he was tested by a Bumrah in-cutter.
The Indian Test captain felt uneasy when the ball hit him in the groin area after a sharp move of length. Rohit was opened by the move and had to spend some time on the floor after being hit by childbirth.
