India's head coach Ravi Shastri, expressing apprehension over senior players Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma taking part in the Test series, said that for this he would have to reach Australia in the next few days. Both Rohit (left hamstring) and Ishant (side strain) are on rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) due to a muscle strain. Team India coach Ravi Shastri has made it clear that if Rohit and Ishant do not leave for Australia in the next four or five days, then it will be very difficult.
Both Rohit and Ishant are recovering from their injury at NCA. Due to injury, Rohit Sharma will not be able to play in the limited-overs series starting on 27 November. Ravi Shastri says that these players should reach Australia soon to take part in the Test series. Shastri said, "Rohit is going through some tests in NCA and now he has to decide how long Rohit needs to be on break.
Ravi Shastri considers the Quarantine rules as very difficult for these players to play. He said, "But things can get tricky because you have to watch Quarantine as well. This can make it difficult for him to play in Tests. Shastri said about Rohit not being part of the limited-overs series." Won't play the limited-overs series. He just wanted to see how many days he needed rest because you cannot rest for long.
