IND vs WI 2022: “India need Rohit Sharma for the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup”

Former Pakistani leg spinner Danish Kaneria is concerned for Indian captain Rohit Sharma over a back spasm he suffered during the second inning of the third T20I against West Indies on Tuesday.

Rohit pulled a delivery towards his leg for a boundary and appeared to have damaged his back a bit in the wake. The physios were called onto the field and after a brief chat, the 35-year-old decided to retire injured.

In a video on his YouTube channel, Danish Kaneria explained why it is important for Sharma to get back to full fitness and take precautions to avoid the cramp getting worse. The 41-year-old believes there are ample opportunities for the Men in Blue to replace their captain for the last two T20Is. He said:

“When Rohit Sharma pulled delivery for a line and how he reacted as a player, I knew he was in a lot of pain. He should prioritize his fitness, even if that means he has to rest for the next two games.” then it doesn’t matter. India need Rohit Sharma for Asian Cup and T20 World Cup. So even if he’s resting there are plenty of match winners and captain options like Shreyas, Sanju Samson or even Rishabh Pant.”

Denmark’s Kaneria praise Suryakumar Yadav for keeping Indian innings together after Rohit Sharma leaves

Despite Rohit leaving the field, Suryakumar Yadav felt comfortable and decided to take it upon himself to win the game for his team. The 31-year-old hit a brilliant 76 from just 44 balls as India drove to a seven-wicket win.

Kaneria was impressed with the way Yadav timed his shots perfectly, especially the swing across the middle of the goal. He said:

“We all know what an incredibly classic player Suryakumar Yadav is. But in modern cricket I don’t think anyone can play the flick shot as well as he does. The way he flicks his wrists over the top absolutely gorgeous.”

It will be interesting to see whether the Indian team management will take the risk of playing against Rohit or advise him to rest.
