Rohit Sharma has returned in IPL 2020 for MI’s game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He missed last four matches for Mumbai Indians after sustaining an injury. He came to the playground just few hours after BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said that there was no timeline for Rohit’s return to competitive cricket.
At the toss when Murali Karthik asked Rohit Sharma about his fitness, he laughed and said “Yeah, looks like that.” Rohit has not been selected for the Australian tour due to injury and the stakeholders were of the view that Rohit Sharma may need to rest for 2-3 months in order to be fully fit for competitive cricket. Now the question arises how is he playing for Mumbai Indians? He was dismissed for 4 runs off 7 balls but he took the first sharp single which shows he is fit and ready for competitive cricket.
When Indian selectors announced the Indian squad for Australian tour, Sharma was not in any team and the selectors said he is injured but soon after that MI franchise uploaded a photo and a video of Rohit Sharma batting in the nets. This arose the confusion in the Indian ranks. Some experts think that something is cooking between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. They also think that it is a dirty politics of Kohli and Ravi Shastri.
The differences between Kohli and Rohit were quite evident in last year’s world cup. The alleged rift between the two giants of Indian batting lineup occurred due to the decision of sending MS Dhoni at number seven during World Cup semi-final between India and New Zealand. Remember Kohli once dated Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh. It was also reported that Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma and Rohit’s wife Ritika Sajdeh shared cold vibes during the India vs Sri Lanka match in World Cup 2019.
