New Delhi. There is good news for Indian cricket fans. Captain Rohit Sharma has started preparations for the T20 series against England. He was found corona infected in the past. For this reason, Rohit could not be a part of the Test match being played between India and England at Edgbaston. He was in isolation since he became Corona positive. But, now he has recovered from Corona and he has started sweating in the net session. The video of Rohit Sharma’s practice has been shared by BCCI from its Twitter account.
In the video shared by BCCI, Rohit Sharma can be seen practicing on off-spinner R Ashwin’s ball. Looking at Rohit’s body language, it seems that he is now fully fit and is all set to take the news of the bowlers. Due to Corona, Rohit could not even take part in the two warm-up matches played against county teams before the T20 series. India beat Northamptonshire by 10 runs in the second warm-up match. In this match, India scored 149 runs in 20 overs due to Harshal Patel’s half-century. After this, Northamptonshire was dismissed for 139 runs. Harshal also took 2 wickets in the match.
