Rohit Sharma injure during practice nets ahead of the semi-final against England
Indian team on Tuesday morning suffered a massive scare as captain Rohit Sharma sustained a powerful blow on his forearm during an optional session ahead of India’s T20 World Cup
semifinal against England on Thursday.
Rohit Sharma was taking customary throwdowns from S Raghu at the Indian net session when a short ball hit his
right forearm and he was instantly in deep pain, leaving the nets immediately, as reported by news agency PTI.
Rohit tried a short arm pull and throwdowns being hurled at 150 plus speed from 18 yards climbed on him
and he missed the shot by a split second.
He left the session and after that a big ice pack was tied to his right arm but he looked desolate and in
considerable pain even while watching the training from a distance sitting on the ice box.
Mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton was seen talking to him for a considerable amount of time.
However in a good news for the fans of India, Rohit did not leave the training session and nursed his hand
with an ice pack for about half an hour before returning to the net session. The team breathed a sigh of relief
after he resumed his training.
After 40 minutes, Sharma decided to bat again. Dayanand Garani, another throwdown specialist, began to
throw from his hands. Sharma faced a few balls and asked him to use the stick – the ball-throwing equipment-
instead. He didn’t feel pain and India’s scary moment had faded away.
The Indian batter has scored 89 runs in the ongoing T20 World Cup, with his highest score of 53 coming
against the Netherlands.
