Waiting for Rohit to recover

The selectors are currently waiting for Rohit Sharma to be fit so that he can captain the Indian team during the ODI series in South Africa. Hitman, who has already been ruled out of the current Test series due to injury, has been replaced by Priyank Panchal.

Indian ODI team selection postponed

After the Vijay Hazare Trophy, the Indian selectors were supposed to select the ODI team at the meeting, but now it seems that Rohit Sharma will take more time to get fully fit, so it has been decided to postpone the election.

The ODI team will be selected on this day

A team selection meeting will be held after the first Test, be it on December 30 or 32, but the board has not yet made a final decision, a BCCI official said. Rohit is trying his best to stay fit but hamstring injury is different from other injuries.

Decision on Rohit soon

According to Firstpost, a BCCI official said, “It is learned that both Rabindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel will not be present for the election. A decision on Rohit will be taken around the election date.

Opportunity for Rohit to get fit

It may be that Rohit Sharma was selected without being fully fit and recovered before the first ODI match. Because there are 3 weeks left till the start of the series and ‘Hitman’ has a good chance to recover.

Who will be the captain in place of Rohit?

If Rohit Sharma is not elected, KL Rahul will lead the party in his place. The selectors are keeping a close eye on Rituraj Gaikwad and Venkatesh Iyer. On the other hand, despite his poor performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Shikhar Dhawan can get a chance. Shah Rukh Khan of Tamil Nadu is also one of the contenders for selection.
