The failure around Rohit Sharma’s injury, the controversy surrounding his participation in the IPL, personal issues and the rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) seem to have not allowed his regular business to be affected. The India Opener recently managed to squeeze in time to visit Alibag to find the property.
Last week, an Indian deputy was seen in the coastal town, south of Mumbai, and locals there have revealed to the paper that they have traveled across the Arabian Sea to find some property. A tourist destination for its beautiful beaches, Alibag is a famous gateway to the wealthy Mumbaikars, who own farmhouses there. One might remember that Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, missed Alibag during the lockdown for some quality time.
The Mirror understands that Rohit flew one day from the NCA in Bangalore. They arrived there with their car by a ro-ro boat. Wearing a black jacket, t-shirt, mask and a black-and-white hat, he also agreed to have pictures with the locals.
The e-mails did not answer Rohit and a BCCI source said his off-day could have gone one day. Rohit’s cousin refused to discuss it. “You have to ask him directly because I can’t go with him that day,” the assistant said. He has since returned to Bangalore to pursue his rehabilitation.
Rohit’s participation in the ongoing series against Australia will be announced on December 11, with NCA experts assessing his fitness. As previously reported by this paper, NCA officials showed three surgeons the hamstring injury they suffered during the IPL in October.
With captain Kohli out of the last three Tests against Australia on an individual basis, the Indian team hopes Rohit will fit in at least two Tests in the four-Test series.
