After a hamstring injury ruled him out of the South Africa tour, Rohit Sharma, is aiming to make a comeback in the home series against West Indies. Scheduled to start from February 6 in Ahmedabad, the six-match white ball series is already under scrutiny due to the Covid-19 situation in India. The Board for Control of Cricket in India has already considered isolating the series to fewer venues than originally proposed, but nothing concrete has been done yet.
Sharma had earlier pulled his left hamstring right ahead of the South Africa tour and got ruled out from the entire tour. Since taking captaincy, he has won against New Zealand in India and it is expected that he will start strong against the new-look Windies team as well.
"Rohit's rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy is going pretty well. He is expected to be okay for the West Indies series. It's still close to three weeks from now before the first ODI is played in Ahmedabad from February 6," PTI quoted an unnamed official under the conditions of anonymity.
