Captain Rohit Sharma is furious with a string of repeated injuries. Sample this, out of 18 players in the squad for Bangladesh, India are now left with only 13. Rohit himself has suffered an injury and is likely out of Bangladesh tour. An angry Rohit had an outburst as he questioned how could players come in half-fit to play for India.
“Few injury concerns and we need to get to the bottom of it. Maybe they’re playing too much cricket. It’s something we have to sit down with our team at NCA and try and monitor their workload. When they come to play for India, they need to be at more than 100 per cent. We need to monitor their workload because we can’t have guys coming in to play for the country half-fit,” Rohit Sharma said at the post-match presentation.
