- Ashish Bhai told that as soon as lockdown opens, we will set up a training camp: Mohammed Shami
- Fit-again Rohit Sharma is craving to get some batting practice before being back on field
- I was injured in February and I have not caught a bat since then: Rohit
India opener Rohit Sharma on Saturday said that he will go to Bengaluru for training and batting practice after the coronavirus lockdown ends as he has not even touched the bat since his injury in February.
Rohit Sharma caught up with his India teammate Mohammed Shami in an Instagram live session on Saturday where both discussed the return of cricket after coronavirus, the current situation amid the pandemic and need of training before international action.
Mohammed Shami also revealed that Ashish Nehra had told him about the training camp after the coronavirus lockdown ends.
“Ashish Bhai was saying that as soon as the lockdown opens, we will set up a training camp. Along with fitness, you will also know that if anyone has any injury,” Shami told Rohit during the Instagram live session.
A fit-again Rohit Sharma is craving to get some batting practice before being back on the field to play competitive cricket. Rohit had suffered a calf-injury during New Zealand tour and was to mark his return to competitive cricket in IPL 2020.
“We should get more time for batting. I was already injured and returned to Mumbai even before you came. I was injured in February and I have not caught a bat since then. I’m guessing it will take two to three months to play. Need to focus on batting skills,” Rohit Sharma told Mohammed Shami.
“In Mumbai, I do not think anything will happen, and that’s why I will go to there will be Banglore for training and batting practice after the lockdown ends,” Rohit added.
