Indian cricket fans can breathe a sigh of relief as skipper Rohit Sharma is fit and ready to lead Team India in the highly anticipated T20 World Cup match against Pakistan. After a recent injury scare, Sharma batted confidently in the nets in New York, just two days before the crucial clash.

Injury Scare and Recovery

During India’s opening match against Ireland, Sharma scored a fifty but had to retire hurt after being struck on the elbow by a delivery from Josh Little. This incident caused concern among fans and the team alike. Despite the scare, Sharma has now fully recovered and participated in a full training session, demonstrating his readiness for the upcoming match.

Team India’s Campaign

India began their T20 World Cup campaign with a commanding 8-wicket win over Ireland. Although Sharma’s injury raised alarms, it was a precautionary measure to retire him hurt, ensuring he avoided further injury. Alongside Sharma, Rishabh Pant also faced a minor injury scare but continued to play and contributed significantly to the victory.

Looking Ahead to IND vs PAK

Rohit Sharma expressed his initial uncertainty about the new pitch conditions in New York, which is a five-month-old drop-in pitch. Despite these concerns, the team adapted well, leading to a strong performance against Ireland.

With Sharma back to full fitness, he will lead Team India again as they face Pakistan on June 9 in what promises to be a thrilling encounter.
