The ICC men’s T20 World Cup 2022 semifinal matchup between Team India and England is scheduled for Thursday at the Adelaide Oval, and only a few days prior, Team India experienced a significant scare.
After landing in Adelaide from Melbourne on Tuesday, November 8, captain Rohit Sharma suffered a hard hit to his forearm while practicing in the nets. In the nets, Rohit was engaging in throwdowns when his right forearm took a hard blow. The Indian captain left the nets as the physio hurried onto the field to check on him.
Rohit Returned Back
After being hit on his right hand during a practise session before to the semi-final match against England, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma returned to the batting nets in Adelaide for some more batting drills.
In the current T20 World Cup 2022, Rohit hasn’t been in the best of form, hitting only 89 runs overall with a maximum score of 53 against the Netherlands. Virat Kohli, a former captain of India, has scored the most runs for his country in the competition (246 from 5 games), but Suryakumar Yadav has been outstanding, hitting 225 runs with a strike rate of 193.96.
