The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday confirmed that Rohit Sharma has passed his fitness test and will join the India team in Australia shortly. Rohit has already been ruled out of the first two Tests because of the 14-day quarantine rule in Australia. However, his selection in the remaining two Tests is contingent on the second set of reassessment to be conducted by the team’s medical team post his mandatory 14-day quarantine.
“Rohit has been given a detailed programme to follow for the duration of the two weeks he will be quarantined for. He will be reassessed by the Team India medical team post his quarantine to establish his fitness status and a call on his participation in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy will be taken accordingly,” stated a BCCI release.
