India opener Rohit Sharma on Saturday said that he is badly missing hitting the ball amid the coronavirus lockdown and can’t wait to go out and enjoy the game.

Cricket like many other sports has been hit hard by the novel coronavirus as almost all leagues and series have either been cancelled or postponed due to the health crisis.

Rohit Sharma, who is the captain of Mumbai Indians, is currently in isolation with his wife and daughter in his flat in Mumbai and wished he had enough place to play indoor cricket.

“I wish I had enough place to play indoor cricket, but unfortunately in Mumbai, the place is very secluded, and you have to stick to your apartment. We are not lucky as you guys where you have your own backyard to play,” Rohit said while speaking to former Australian pacer Brett Lee on Star Sports Cricket Connected show.

“In Mumbai, it’s very expensive to get your own house where you have your own backyard. I live in an apartment and I am lucky to have a little balcony where I can run around and do some activities that my trainer has given me.

Rohit Sharma, who turned 33 on Thursday, said he is trying to maintain his fitness in the little space he has and hopes that the gyms will open soon.

“I am trying to follow whatever little I can. Hopefully, the gyms will open soon, and I can go there,” he added.

“But I am missing hitting the ball, that’s for sure. As you know, I like to hit big, so the space is not enough. I just can’t wait to go out there and start hitting the ball,” Rohit said.
