WI vs IND: Rohit to play the remaining two games against West Indies – Reports
Notably, after the win in the last match, the skipper himself gave an update on his injury. He said in the post-match conference that it was a minor one and he was hopeful that he would get fit for the remaining two games. He is one of the most important members of the side and also played a match-changing inning of 64 off 44 balls in the first game. But as the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup are coming up, the management doesn’t want to take any kind of risk.
However, as per the report suggested by Cricbuzz, Rohit will play the two matches. The report quoted, “Rohit will be available for the last two games on Saturday and Sunday.” Although India has a backup option in Ishan Kishan, who didn’t get the chance in the first three games. In the absence of the 35-year-old, Rishabh Pant or Hardik Pandya can lead the side. Both these players captained the team recently.
Speaking of the remaining matches, the next two games will be played in Florida, USA. The fourth match will take place on Saturday, August 6 at 8 p.m. IST.
