India’s stylish opener and the captain of Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma insisted that he was scared when the injury happened. Rohit Sharma sustained a thigh injury during India’s home season and later struggled with a niggle in his Knee.
“To be honest, I was scared when that injury happened. It’s something which has never happened to me. I heard a very loud noise while taking a run. I was little scared until we got an MRI done, I did not know what to expect and what it was”, Rohit Sharma told to ESPNCricinfo.
Rohit explained that how difficult to sit in the room as a player when the team takes the field. He also insisted that he consulted many doctors regarding the injury rehabilitation.
“It was tough to sit in the hotel room, watching the team play. It is always tough. But I guess you have to go through it. I have been through it many times before. When you know you are injured, doing your rehab and stuff. It is hard to be in that position and see the team play”, added Rohit Sharma in his interview with ESPNCricinfo.
He finally declared that he is fit for the competitive game and also credited the efforts of NCA staff. He also mentioned about the fitness pieces of training he underwent to be fully fit for the game and also focussed on his lost muscle to get back his strength.
“Credit to the NCA staff for putting that effort. The big challenge for me was to gain the muscle back first and become a lot stronger. There were a lot of things I focussed on and thankfully, I am back on my feet and ready to play”, concluded Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma missed the most part of India’s successful home season as he spent around 5 months with his injury. However, he regained his fitness to feature his side, Mumbai Indians in the upcoming edition of IPL 2017 which is just a couple of days away from the start.
