Team India head coach Ravi Shastri is worried about senior players Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma taking part in the next Test series against Australia, in which they will have to reach Australia in the near future. Both Rohit (left hamstring) and Ishant (side strain) are rehabilitated at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) due to muscular tension. However, the Cricket Board (BCCI) has not yet issued a date for their departure to Australia. Given the 14-day quarantine required in Australia, they will not be able to participate in the practice match against Australia A from December 6 to 8 unless they leave India on Monday.

Shastri told ABC Sports that it was already decided that Rohit would not be part of the limited-overs series due to injury. They wanted to see how much rest they needed because you couldn’t relax much time. If you want to play in a Test series, you should be on the plane for the next three or four days, ”he said. If this is not done it will be difficult.

Shastri said the NCA medical team is currently assessing how long Rohit will break the game. He said things should be difficult for them to rest for a long time because you have to keep the quarantine in mind. Rohit had earlier said in an interview that he was doing ‘strength and conditioning’ training at the NCA. Shastri said Ishant’s case was similar to that of Rohit. You never really know when they will be ready to move to Australia. Like I said, if someone wants to play in a Test series, they have to fly in the next four or five days. If not, it can be very difficult.
