Very bad news has come for Indian fans. In this match, the captain of the Indian team, Rohit Sharma, who came out to chase 165 runs, started the innings in a quick manner but due to sudden back pain, he had to leave the field and go back.
Rohit Sharma retired in the middle of the match due to injury
In fact, Indian captain Rohit Sharma got a strain in his back muscle during the third T20 match against West Indies while batting on Tuesday and he had to go out. Rohit (11) took a run after hitting a six and a four in Alzarri Joseph’s over, after which suddenly he felt pain in his back.
Seeing Rohit in trouble, Indian team physio Kamlesh reached the ground and tried to treat him, however when he did not feel comfortable, he retired and left the field. When Rohit Sharma was asked about this in the award ceremony after the match, he refused to say anything.
Health update given after the match
After the match, when Rohit Sharma was asked about the injury, he said, ‘I am fine at the moment. There is some time for the next match to be held, so I am sure that by then I will be fully fit. We bowled well in the middle overs and made good use of the pitch. The way we chased this target, it matters a lot.
It is worth noting that Rohit Sharma has been a victim of injuries since becoming the captain and recently he could not even play the Test match against England due to this. India has the remaining 2 matches to play in Florida, in view of which if Rohit’s injury prolongs, then he can also be ruled out of the Asia Cup starting on August 27.
