Rohit Sharma, was not the topic of discussion for BCCI’s Senior National Selection Committee on Monday as the selection committee has decided not to include the opener in the upcoming Australian Tour of India.
The Australian tour, which will begin from November 27, will have the two teams locking horns against each other in fours Tests, three One-day Internationals and as many Twenty20 Internationals.
Rohit Sharma’s absence from the team is the result of his recent hamstring injury. Besides Rohit, Ishant Sharma was also not considered for the Test squad owing to a rib injury. The absence of these key players will surely make the road difficult for India in Australia, and even the internet realises the fact:
However, KL Rahul, who is having a dream run in the IPL, has been selected for the longest format of the game and we hope he would keep the momentum going in Australia. Also, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s fast-bowling duo of Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj have been named in the Test squad.

Meanwhile, after the squads were announced by BCCI and Rohit was not named, Mumbai Indians shared a clip of Rohit from the practice session. We don’t know if the video was shot before Rohit’s injury or after, but it surely has people asking if Rohit is seriously injured or something else is cooking in the dressing room?
Other fans, on the other hand, are expectedly missing Rohit Sharma:
