Rohit Sharma is recovering from his hamstring, and is likely to make a comeback for the six-match home white-ball series against the West Indies next month. Rohit, who was appointed Team India’s vice-captain for the Test series in South Africa, was ruled out just before the departure after injuring his hamstring.
He was also not named for the ODI series in the Rainbow Nation. “Rohit’s rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy is going pretty well. He is expected to be okay for the West Indies series. It’s still close to three weeks from now before the first ODI is played in Ahmedabad from February 6,” a BCCI source privy to developments told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
The visitors will play three ODIs and as many T20Is against the Men in Blue. The one-day internationals will be played from February 6 to 12, followed by T20Is from February 15 to 20.
