Hyderabad: The BCCI selection committee announced the squads of Indian teams for T20s, ODIs and Test matches for the Australia tour recently and it was the topic of discussion. With a few names out of the squad, there were questions seeking clarification on certain omissions from the team. Among them was Rohit Sharma, who has been dropped from the tour as he suffered an injury during the ongoing IPL.
However, there was no clarity on the nature of the injury that has kept everyone in the dark. Speaking on the issue, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag said, “During my playing days, when Srikkanth was the chairman of selectors, if a player was injured on the day of selection then he was not picked. But this is a long tour and Rohit Sharma is an important player, so if he has not been picked keeping in mind his injury status today then I guess it is a bit harsh on him,” Sehwag said.
“Even I have no update on Rohit Sharma’s injury status. The media should ask this question. Earlier it was told that he is unwell, if he is unwell then what is he doing inside the stadium? He was seen during both matches. If he is unwell then he should be on bed rest to recover as soon as possible. So, clearly he is not unwell,” Sehwag said.
