Indian opener Rohit Sharma, who was not picked for the much-anticipated ongoing Aussies tour due to his hamstring injury, is said to have cleared the National Cricket Academy (NCA) fitness evaluation. While the batsman reportedly passed the fitness examination, the decision on whether to send him to Australia or not lies with the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI).
The recovery of Rohit will certainly provide a positive boost to the Indian camp in Australia, which is gearing up for the Gavaskar Test cricket at the Border. The series will begin on the 17th of this month. India is eager to replicate the outcome of Border-Gavaskar 2018-19 by winning the test series. After the first test, the unavailability of skipper Virat Kohli will definitely make India poor. The likely inclusion of Rohit Sharma for the Test series will improve the Indian team's strength. Rohit's return to the Indian team will definitely make a difference in the success of the opener. While Australia won 2-1 in the ODI series, India balanced it by winning the T20 series. India also won 2-1 in the T20 series.
