The cricketing fraternity is in a massive shock after Rohit Sharma, the skipper of the Mumbai Indians (MI) has declared himself as ‘fit’ to captain his side in the Qualifier 1 to be played against the Delhi Capitals (DC) on Thursday.
Recently, India named the squads for their upcoming series against Australia for which Rohit Sharma was not the part of either of the two squads for two formats. The reason for deselecting him was his injury which refrained him to captain and play in MI’s encounter against the Kings XI Punjab.
The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) announced that he will be out of the squads and hence, IPL but after he has revealed his availability for the Qualifier 1, the cricket world is busy slamming him on Twitter and other social media.
Rohit Sharma unfit for India tour of Australia but will play Qualifier 1 against the Delhi Capitals
They believe that IPL is more important to him as compared to when it comes to playing for the homeland India. Also, the former cricketer, Vengsarkar joined the forces and asked the same question.
“It’s intriguing that Rohit Sharma, the most accomplished batsman of Team India, who was only a few days ago declared unfit to tour Australia by the Indian team’s physio (Nitin Patel) and hence not selected for the trip, is playing and leading MI in the IPL,” Vengsarkar was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
“Now, the question here is, is the IPL more important to him than playing for India? Is the club more important than playing for the nation for him? Will the BCCI take a call on this? Or is it that the BCCI physio faltered in diagnosing Rohit’s injury correctly,” he said.
