Samip Rajguru slams Rohit, in turn, gets trolled by fans

Veteran Indian journalist Samip Rajguru took to his Twitter account to question why Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid didn’t fly to England on June 16 despite being rested for the South Africa series.

Rohit Sharma To Join Team India Soon

Sharma recently returned from his vacation in the Maldives and will join Pant and Shreyas Iyer for the flight to the UK on June 20 from Bangalore after the completion of the ongoing IndiaSouth Africa T20I series.

The Edgbaston Test, which is the last Test of the unfinished series from last year, will be the first time Sharma will lead India in an overseas Test. Under Kohli’s captaincy, India gained a 2-1 lead in the 4 Tests played so far, where Sharma was India’s highest run-getter with 368 runs and only behind Joe Root.

Sharma, though, is coming off a poor IPL season – where the MI skipper finished with 268 runs at an average of 19 and a strike rate of 120 and didn’t notch up even a single half-century.

India will kick off the tour with a 4-day practise match against Leicestershire from June 24, while Hardik Pandya will be leading the T20I side for two T20Is in Ireland on June 26 and 28. The Edgbaston Test will be followed by 3 T20Is and 3 ODI with the tour concluding on July 17 in Manchester.
