Notably, India’s new ODI skipper Rohit Sharma sustained a hamstring injury before the start of the Test series against South Africa. Rohit, who was also promoted as the vice-captain in the Test format, was directly ruled out of the red ball series, however, he is still expected to take part in the upcoming ODI series, which will be his first assignment as the full-time white-ball skipper of team India.

As per the sources, the Indian selectors want to give every possible chance to Rohit Sharma to regain his fitness, and hence the announcement of India’s squad for the ODI series has been delayed. The reports also suggest that the team India’s physio is yet to receive a complete fitness report of Rohit Sharma. The selection meeting has been pushed back to January 1 following the issue of Rohit’s fitness.
