Hyderabad: On a day when BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said Rohit Sharma will make it to team for Australian Tour if he is fit and cautioned him against playing before recovering from the hamstring injury, the cricketer surprised everyone by playing for Mumbai Indians in the final league match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

However, he was not seen in any discomfort while fielding in the match. Former cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar feels that his return from injury augurs well for the Indian team. “Whatever has transpired earlier with regards to his (Rohit) injury, keeping that aside, I would say it’s great news for Indian cricket that Rohit Sharma is fit. Look, the concern shown by everyone collectively that there could be a rupture (if he hurries his return) is a valid one. But he looked confident. He fielded at the boundary ropes and also in the 30-yard circle,” Gavaskar said.

“He played the match to show that he is fit but if BCCI wants to test his fitness again, then there is nothing wrong in it. Because they want to check if he is fully fit or not. Maybe, he will be monitored. Normally, when you come back from injury, you need to play a few matches as match fitness determines your fitness status,” he stated.
