Earlier on Tuesday, Sharma got injured while taking throwdown practice. He faced an injury scare after being hit on his right hand by a throwdown specialist during a net session at the Adelaide Oval. The Indian captain was batting in the nets to the throwdown specialist when the ball snuck up on him and hit him on his right hand, as reported by news agency ANI. He was immediately seen writhing in pain and quickly used the magic spray to reduce the intensity of the pain.
There were concerned faces in the team after the batter was hit as he is an important cog in the wheel for the Indian team. Rohit however, did not leave the training session and nursed his hand with an ice pack for about half an hour before returning to the net session. The team breathed a sigh of relief after he resumed his training.
Following his side’s 71-run victory over Zimbabwe in their final ICC T20 World Cup Super 12 stage match, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma had said that it will be important to adjust to conditions as quickly as possible ahead of their semifinal clash against England at Adelaide on Thursday.
