Rohit Sharma Reacts To Rahane's "Good Times" Picture From South Africa
Team India is preparing for the important Test series against South Africa. The first Test will begin on December 26th at Cape Town. India has not won the series in the nation so far, and hence, Virat Kohli's men will be keen to create history. Before the Indian contingent travelled to South Africa, it was announced that Rohit Sharma will miss the Test series due to a hamstring injury. It seems that he wanted badly to be part of the event. His recent comment to Ajinkya Rahane's picture proves the same.
Ajinkya Rahane's "Good Times" picture from South Africa
Ajinkya Rahane recently posted a picture from South Africa with other players like R Ashwin and Cheteshwar Pujara. He captioned "Top guys, good times!" and seemed to be in a happy space. Rohit Sharma reacted to this post and said "Abey Chal Re". It is clear that Rohit Sharma is missing not being part of the tour.
Meanwhile, it is not sure if Rahane will be part of the playing XI. However, he has had experience in the nation and the management might give him another chance. The likes of Shreyas Iyer and Hanuma Vihari will be tried out if Rahane fails.
No news regarding Rohit Sharma's availability for the Tour
It was announced that Rohit would need three weeks to recover from the injury. However, there is no update regarding the same. It is expected to be announced once the ODI squad for the South Africa series gets selected. Rohit Sharma was recently appointed as the ODI skipper of Team India. Hence, the upcoming ODI series is his first assignment as the full-time ODI captain of the country. If he misses the series, it will be interesting as to who will lead the nation. KL Rahul is currently at the top of the list in that regard.
