If BCCI wants to test Rohit Sharma’s fitness again, there is nothing wrong with it: Sunil Gavaskar | Sunil Gavaskar says it is OK if BCCI want to test Rohit’s fitness
Rohit Sharma’s return to IPL 2020 last match before the Playoffs created as he has been left out from the Australia tour citing his hamstring injury. While the batsman said during the Toss and post-match presentation that is “absolutely fine”, questions were raised to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly who had said that he has a hamstring tear and it will get ruptured again, just a day before the game.
In an interaction with a media group on YouTube, Sunil Gavaskar emphasized on BCCI wanting to test Sharma’s fitness. “He played the match to show that he is fit but if BCCI wants to test his fitness again, then there is nothing wrong in it. Because they want to check if he is fully fit or not”, he said.
The former India captain said that the concerns raised by head coach Ravi Shastri and BCCI President urging the senior player to take proper rest are a much valid stand. “Look, the concern shown by everyone collectively that there could be a rupture (if he hurries his return) is a valid one. But he looked confident. He fielded at the boundary ropes and also in the 30-yard circle. May be, he will be monitored. Normally, when you come back from injury, you need to play a few matches as match fitness determines your fitness status”, he said.
