The third West Indies vs. India T20I saw injured Rohit Sharma leave the game after the second over.
Rohit Sharma, who opened the second over of the run chase with a six and a four that were separated by a dot ball, began to struggle in the middle, and the physio came out to help. Rohit appeared to be struggling noticeably and went off, much to the surprise of onlookers, after a lengthy debate with the physio.
Sharma looked visibly fatigued by the heat since the temperature in St. Kitts has been hovering around 35 degrees Celsius with a humidity of 70%.
That said, there was uncertainty regarding why exactly Rohit Sharma left the field with the commentators also citing that dehydration was a possible cause. There was talk of him possibly pulling a muscle while trying to swivel across to play a shot earlier in the same over.
Rohit Sharma will be missed by Team India
Shreyas Iyer walked in to join Suryakumar Yadav as India looked to chase down 165 in St Kitts.
It was later understood that the 35-year-old left the field with back spasms, as confirmed by the team physio.
While the severity of the injury is unknown, he might well be rested for the remainder of the series, with the Asia Cup 2022 to commence later this month.
