Indian cricket fans have been given a scare with news that Indian cricket team star batsman, Rohit Sharma, has suffered an injury scare during practice ahead of the semi-final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup against England.
Rohit Sharma, the highest run scorer in the ongoing World Cup, was struck on his left ankle while practicing in the nets at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. It was reported that Sharma left the field immediately with the help of the medical staff and underwent an assessment afterwards.
Chief India selector MSK Prasad presented a positive outlook, however, as he said that Sharma is “absolutely fine” and there is nothing to worry about. The Injury scare occurred while he attempted a full stretch during a pull shot. Indian skipper Virat Kohli, in the meantime, has asked the fans not to speculate on the player’s health and instead “just pray for his good news”.
These statements have given some solace to the cricket fans but the Indian camp is likely to leave no stone unturned in order to make sure that the injury does not affect the performance of their beloved batsman. Sharma has been in scintillating form in the tournament, having racked up a brilliant 647 runs from 8 matches.
Currently, the Indian opener is undergoing rehabilitation as part of his recovery program. Only time will tell if he will be able to recover in time and take to the field in what is an all-important match against England. That said, Sharma’s injury scare has been a major cause of concern for the Indian team.
Injury Scare for Rohit Sharma before India’s Semi-Final Against England
Rohit Sharma has given India plenty of reasons to cheer during their spectacular tournament run at the World Cup this year. However, ahead of their all important semi-final match against England, the Indian batting sensation has been hit by an injury scare.
Details of the injury
During a routine training session on Tuesday, Rohit Sharma injured his left thigh and was forced to leave the session early. He is currently under observation, and team India is waiting patiently to know the full extent of his injury.
What this means for Team India
Rohit Sharma’s injury, if serious, is a huge blow for Team India and their hopes of winning the World Cup. Rohit is the team’s leading scorer in the tournament and has been a key member of the batting lineup. It can be argued that Without him, India’s chances of victory against England in the semi-final are greatly reduced.
Previous Injury Setbacks
This is not the first time that Rohit Sharma has been hit by an injury ahead of an important game. Earlier in the tournament, he was seen limping during the warm-up before their match against New Zealand and had to sit out the match. India went on to win that game but it was surely a scare for the team management.
Support for Rohit
The Indian cricket team and fans from across the globe are wishing Rohit Sharma a speedy recovery. His millions of fans are hoping that he will be fit and ready to take the field against England and help India achieve their ultimate goal of lifting the World Cup trophy.
Let us all hope for the best and wish Rohit Sharma that he recovers in time and leads India’s charge against England in the upcoming semi-final.
