Ever since Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper returned on the field for the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the on-going IPL 2020, it has become a big topic of discussion regarding his health and injury.

Last week, when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the squad for the Australian tour, Rohit Sharma's name was not included in any of the teams.

The MI skipper sustained a hamstring strain during the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in Dubai, after that he was left out from the tour of Australia. The BCCI then claimed that Rohit is unfit and the medical team will constantly monitor him, which was the reason he was not selected.

Few videos of Rohit Sharma seen practising in the nets emerged soon after the announcement went viral which caused a massive controversy on social media as the cricketing legends raised questions on the board’s assessment.  

After days of discussion, former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar opened up on the real issue and claimed that Rohit Sharma’s availability to play matches is great news for Indian cricket fans. He also opened up on the entire controversy surrounding Rohit Sharma and kept his views on the entire matter.

“Whatever has transpired earlier with regards to his (Rohit) injury, keeping that aside, I would say it’s a great news for Indian cricket that Rohit Sharma is fit. Look, the concern shown by everyone collectively that there could be a rupture (if he hurries his return) is a valid one. But he looked confident. He fielded at the boundary ropes and also in the 30-yard circle,” Gavaskar said on “Sports Tak”. 

Talking about how impressed he is with Rohit’s fitness, Gavaskar said it wouldn’t be a bad call if the BCCI were to conduct a fitness test to get an estimation of the batsman’s progress and recovery.

“He played the match to show that he is fit but if BCCI wants to test his fitness again, then there is nothing wrong in it. Because they want to check if he is fully fit or not. Maybe, he will be monitored. Normally, when you come back from injury, you need to play a few matches as match fitness determines your fitness status,” Gavaskar said.

Further speaking on the issue, Gavaskar states that it all boils down to Rohit’s availability, which appears to be positive. 

“Irrespective of how much you look fit in the nets, you are not stressed but when you have the pressure of a match, that gives an idea of how fit you are. Captain, vice-captain shouldn’t be an issue at all. The moot point is the player should be available to play and he is available,” said Gavaskar.

“Twice Rohit was asked before and after the match and he said that he is fit and doing well. He seemed confident. So actually, there is no point going into the details of what happened earlier. Let’s talk about today and today he is fit,” Sunil Gavaskar concluded.
