Rohit Sharma, India's recently appointed Test vice-captain, suffered a hand injury during a training session before the upcoming South Africa series. Rohit sustained the injury during a net practice before the Indian cricket squad and staff members were quarantined in Mumbai. This week, the squad will go to South Africa.
India A captain, Priyank Panchal, has been named as a replacement for Rohit Sharma.
Before the injury, Rohit Sharma was batting with Ajinkya Rahane. Both senior hitters chose to confront one over each of the three throwdown professionals.
The absence of an in-form and experienced player like Rohit Sharma will be a significant loss to Virat Kohli's team in the forthcoming series. The majority of fans agreed and were disappointed to see Rohit Sharma miss out. However, several fans suspected Rohit of habitually being hurt before SENA tours and trolled him for it.
