India's captain Rohit Sharma raised fresh injury concerns on Friday during a practice session at Cantiague Park in New York, ahead of the T20 World Cup clash against Pakistan on Sunday.

Rohit, already nursing a sore arm from the match against Ireland, was struck on the thumb by a ball from throwdown specialist Nuwan.

BCCI File Unofficial Complain

This incident has led the BCCI to file an unofficial complaint with the ICC regarding the practice pitch conditions as per the latest report.

The awkward bounce of the track at Cantiague Park, located about five miles from the main venue, Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, has troubled many players.

Star batter Virat Kohli also struggled with the bounce during his batting session, although he avoided injury. After being hit, Rohit was quickly attended to by a physiotherapist, and although he continued batting for a short while, he eventually left the session early.

This issue is not isolated. Earlier this week, during the low-scoring game between Sri Lanka and South Africa, the ICC expressed dissatisfaction with the drop-in pitch and the poor outfield conditions at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.

Additionally, Ireland's coach Heinrich Malan expressed his disappointment with the wicket during the India vs Ireland match.

In a positive development, Rohit Sharma has been declared fit and will be seen in action against Pakistan on June 9 in New York.
