Rohit Sharma finally returned to the field on Thursday and did his first outdoor training after three months. With a post on social media, India’s hitman expressed his joy of finally being able to hit the ground after so long.
Rohit Sharma resumes training
After a pandemic forced long break, cricketers are finally starting training one by one as the global body and respective boards have started to plan for the game as well. A nationwide extended lockdown forced the Indian cricketers to go for a long break of three months in the wake of the COVID-19 in India. For players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, it was even tougher as they stay in Mumbai, one of the most containment cities of the country.
After three months, finally, Rohit Sharma was seen training on the field on Thursday when the country is overserving a relaxation of the lockdown. India’s limited-overs vice-captain, who last played competitive cricket during the T20 series in New Zealand, took to his social media account to share his joy. He wrote with a post-training picture on Instagram, “Good to be back on the park getting some work done… felt like myself after a long time.”

Meanwhile, the Indian cricket board has started to plan a six-week training camp for the national players. But the reports suggest that Mumbai players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma will not be able to join the team due to the scary situation in Mumbai.
