New Delhi: Indian batsman Rohit Sharma on Wednesday declared that he is once again “complete” and ready for another go at international cricket. As a proof, the right-handed batsman shared a series of photos in the micro-blogging site Twitter.
The 29-year-old has been recuperating from an injury on his right upper quadriceps tendon, which he sustained during the final ODI gainst New Zealand on October 29, 2016. He then underwent a surgery in England and has since been working hard to make a comeback in the national team.
Hitman, as he is called by his team mates, tweeted this after he received a lot of queries about his ‘imminent’ comeback.
Guys thank you for all your concern I’m not fit yet but I am targeting the Australia series if all goes well thank you for the love.
