Rohit Sharma wants to make a comeback in series against Australia
Rohit was not a part of India�s Test, ODI and T20 triumphs against England.
The star batsman of Indian team Rohit Sharma said he is striving to make his long-awaited return to the Indian cricket team in the upcoming series against Australia.
According to the reports, Rohit said, "I am trying to make a comeback in the Australia series. That is the series I am eyeing. I am at the NCA (National Cricket Academy) right now and everybody is trying to help me out.”
Earlier, Rohit had undergone a thigh surgery in London after suffering an injury in the final One-day International against New Zealand last year. He was not a part of India’s Test, ODI and T20 triumphs against England.
The New Zealand series was the last time the opener was seen in action. However, the record holder for scoring two double tons in ODIs, Rohit said he was feeling better and raring to go.
Rohit had hurt his thing in the final One-dayer against New Zealand while trying to complete a run. Despite the injury, he kept batting and made a crucial 70 in India’s win, in the process aggravating his injury.
He had then undergone a successful surgery on his right upper quadriceps tendon with the recovery process keeping him out of action for a long period.
Rohit’s absence was felt, as Captain Virat Kohli admitted that the opening combination looked shaky.
“If Rohit was in the side, there is no question he would be opening with Rahul. I have no urge to open, I play at three, I can play anywhere according to what the management thinks. You can’t ask someone to open if he has not done it in the past. It would be unfair on him,” Kohli had said recently.
Another new find and breaking records player KL Rahul’s sudden form slump in limited-overs cricket also did not help the team’s cause, as he fell for 8, 5 and 11 in the ODIs.
