There's great news for not just Mumbai Indian fans but cricket fans alike. Recently, Rohit Sharma had suffered a leg injury in a training session for MI's last match. Now, it seems that the skipper is back and ready to perform in the upcoming match against Rajasthan Royals.
Earlier, reports had emerged that the player suffered a muscle pull during a training session, which led him to miss the last match against KXIP. Though the team won the match, Rohit Sharma's explosive performance was missed by fans and they were eagerly waiting for his comeback. Now, the skipper seems to have recovered and will be back on the field in Mumbai Indian's upcoming match against the Rajasthan Royals.
With this in mind, it can be assumed that the injury was nothing major and could possibly have been some sort of a severe cramp. This also comes as a relief for the selectors for the Indian National team for the ICC world cup squad, as they were sceptical about Rohit Sharma's injury.
In the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard led Mumbai from the front and came up with two match winning performances. He was ably supported by Alzarri Joseph, who has been the find of the tournament.
In the upcoming match, a confident Mumbai Indians will look to consolidate their position in the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table when they host a lacklustre Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday. Mumbai has won their last three games and are placed third on the table with four wins from six games while their opponents have managed to win just one game so far and lie at the seventh place.
