Rohit Sharma: Why Rohit Sharma is not playing the fifth and last T20 against West Indies


Fort Lauderhill: The Indian team has landed in the fifth and last T20 match against West Indies (India vs West Indies 5th T20i) without their regular captain Rohit Sharma. Hardik Pandya is captaining the last match in place of Hitman. Rishabh Pant, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Suryakumar Yadav have also been kept away from this match. Ishan Kishan, Kuldeep Yadav, Pandya and Shreyas Iyer have returned to the playing XI. But the question arises that why is Rohit Sharma not playing this match?

In the third match, Rohit Sharma had definitely gone out after being retired hurt. There was also a risk of injury, but he was declared fit for the next two matches. Hitman played the fourth match and under his captaincy gave India an unassailable lead in the series. Perhaps this is one reason why he felt it necessary to rest in the last match. Anyway, tomorrow i.e. on August 8, the Indian team for the Asia Cup is to be announced. In such a situation, the team management would like to check many youths.

Anyway, this is Hardik Pandya’s third match as captain. He made his captaincy debut in the two-match T20I series against Ireland and led the team to series wins.
