Rohit Sharma reportedly sustained a blow on his right forearm during throwdown sessions in Adelaide as India gear up for the semi-finals against Jos Buttler-led England on Thursday

Ahead of the all-important semi-finals, Team India dealt with a major injury scare as Rohit Sharma gets hit in the nets on Tuesday morning. The Indian captain reportedly sustained a blow on his right forearm during throwdown sessions in Adelaide as India gear up for their next face-off against Jos Buttler-led England on Thursday.

Several renowned cricket journalists who are covering the tournament Down Under have reported that Rohit had just begun training when he was hit in his hand. He, in fact, walked off the nets without spending much time which initially seemed to be a massive concern for the team management.

The captain, who was attempting a pull shot and missed the ball, was visibly in pain and left the session immediately. A big ice pack was tied to his right arm. He looked desolate and in considerable pain while watching the training session from a distance, sitting on an ice box.

Mental conditioning coach Paddy Upton was seen talking to him for a considerable amount of time. The extent of the injury could not be known even as the Indian medical team will assess him after the session.

After applying an ice pack and taking some rest, Rohit resumed his training but throwdown experts were told not to go full throttle as he mostly played defensive shots to check if his movements were okay. Veteran journalist Vimal Kumar reported that the Indian skipper is fine and has resumed his net practice, adding that he is hitting the ball better than before.

The exact nature of Rohit’s injury is not known yet and hopefully, it doesn’t get any bad going ahead in the tournament. The team is already playing without the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. The right-arm quick suffered a stress fracture in his back, while the latter is recovering from knee surgery.

Rohit’s form has been a matter of concern for team management as the Indian skipper hasn’t scored much in the tournament so far. He has just 89 runs from five matches, including a half-century. Barring his innings against the Netherlands (53 off 39), he has failed to convert the starts he has been getting. He was dismissed for 4 against Pakistan and managed scores of 15, 2, and 15 against South Africa, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe, respectively.

On Sunday, India defeated Zimbabwe by 71 runs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, finishing their Super 12 round at the top of the Group 2 points table. Fifties from KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav helped India set a mammoth 187-run target for the opponents. In reply, the Indian bowlers bowled Zimbabwe out for 115 in 17.2 overs.
