Sunil Gavaskar Questions Rohit Sharma’s Exclusion from India Squad

After the BCCI has announced the squads for the upcoming tour of Australia, everyone was surprised as well as shocked to see Rohit Sharma has not been included in any of the three squads. The reason was Rohit sustained an injury and didn’t play in Mumbai’s last two matches.

“The BCCI Medical Team will continue to monitor the progress of Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma,” BCCI’s official release read.

However, this shocking incident left batting legend and former India captain Sunil Gavaskar in much surprise and he asked some clarity from the board over his injury after the match between Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020.

“We are talking about the Test matches, which are a month and a half way,” Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports.“And if he is practising in the nets for Mumbai Indians, then honestly I don’t know what kind of injury it is. I think a little bit of transparency, a little bit of openness about what actually is the problem with him will help everybody.”

The former player also opened up about Mayank Agarwal, who too did not play in Punjab’s last two matches due to a niggle, but earned a place in the India squad.

“The Indian cricket fan deserves to know, more than anything else. The franchisees, I understand. They don’t want to give their hand away. They don’t want to give the oppositions any psychological advantage. But we are talking about the Indian team here. Even Mayank Agarwal for example. For an Indian cricket fan, they ought to know what happens to two of their key players,” Gavaskar further shared.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has already suffered from injuries earlier also and had to miss the New Zealand series due to an injury as well which India lost 2-0.
