India kickstarted their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign on a positive note as the Rohit Sharma-led side registered an eight-wicket win over Ireland to go on top of Group A. The bowlers shone for the Men in Blue as they restricted Ireland to just 96 runs. 

In reply, India lost an early wicket, but skipper Rohit Sharma shone with the bat as the hitman amassed 52 (37), which included four fours and three sixes. 

However, the 37-year-old had to return to the dugout 'Retired Hurt' after getting hit on the shoulder by a sharp bouncer on the last ball of the 10th over. 

The fans were left worried to see the captain walk off the field with an injury scare as the Men in Blue are set to face arch-nemesis Pakistan in an important match on June 9 at the Nassau County Cricket Stadium. 

However, after the game, Rohit shrugged off any concerns and remarked that he had just a sore arm. Although, did Rohit actually injure himself? Here is the reality. 

Notably, OneCricket Correspondent, Vimal Kumar, revealed that during the drinks break after the 10th over, India's head coach Rahul Dravid had a discussion with Rohit, who was in a little discomfort and asked him to return to the pavilion to allow Suryakumar Yadav have some match-time. 

When SKY walked onto the bat, India required just 21 runs off 60 deliveries. However, Surya failed to make a mark with the bat and got out after scoring just 2 (4).
