Rohit Sharma Experiences Injury Scare During Practice, Resuming Workouts Before T20 World Cup Semi-Final
In what appears to be a big setback, India captain Rohit Sharma reportedly hurt his forearm during a net workout before their crucial semifinal matchup against England at the Adelaide Oval on November 10 is scheduled to take place.
The report also states that a sizable ice pack was fastened to his right arm, which received the impact. Sharma then made the decision to skip the training session and continued to observe it from the sidelines before joining in. The “Hitman,” however, appeared to be extremely uncomfortable.
The skipper of Team India, Rohit Sharma, reportedly took a severe knock to the forearm during an optional practice on Tuesday morning, just days before India’s T20 World Cup semifinal match against England.
As the team prepared to play England in the T20 World Cup semifinal, India skipper Rohit Sharma took a hard knock to the forearm during a Tuesday optional training session. A short ball flew off the length area and struck Rohit’s right forearm as he was going through his routine practice drills against the team’s throwdown expert S Raghu at the Adelaide Oval. The skipper quit the session right after because he was clearly in agony after missing a pull shot attempt.
His right arm was secured with a big ice pack. He watched the training session from a distance, sitting on an ice box, and appeared lonesome and in great pain.
He was observed conversing with mental fitness coach Paddy Upton for a sizable period of time.
Rohit continued training after applying an ice pack and taking some time to recover, but throwdown experts advised him not to go all out because he was mostly practicing defensive shots to ensure that his motions were natural.
Even though the Indian medical team will evaluate him after the workout, the degree of the injury is not yet known.
However, Sharma did start training after applying an ice pack and taking a little time to recover. He simply used defensive shots to see if his hand mobility was okay because it was advised that he not put too much strain on himself while practicing.
The Indian medical team will examine Rohit Sharma to determine the extent of the injury, which will shed lighter on the situation.
It is now unknown whether the injury will cause him to miss the semifinal match against England or if he will fully heal in time for the elimination round. India will be hoping for the best when they play the Three Lions for a spot in the championship game.
India and England will meet for the first time in a World Cup knockout match after a 35-year absence. The last time it occurred was at the Wankhede Stadium during the semifinal of the 1987 World Cup.
