Rohit Sharma could miss at least 10-12 weeks of cricket, confirm BCCI

Mumbai: Star batsman Rohit Sharma could be out of competitive cricket for two to three months if doctors advise him to go under the knife after the right-hander sustained a thigh injury on the right leg, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said.

Rohit injured himself while taking a single during the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand at Visakhapatnam on 29 October.

"BCCI medical team confirms that India batsman Rohit Sharma sustained an injury on his right upper quadriceps tendon, during the fifth and final match of the five-match One-day series against New Zealand in Vizag on 29 October," the BCCI said in a statement.

"He will travel to London early next week for specialist consultation with a possibility to undergo surgery, as a result of which, he is expected to miss at least 10 to 12 weeks of cricket."

"The BCCI medical team will extend all support to Rohit Sharma, to regain full fitness and further contribute to Indian cricket," the statement added.

Earlier, the BCCI selection committee has already left the 29-year-old batsman out of the India squad for the Test series against England, starting on 9 November at Rajkot.

India will play five Tests against the English side, followed by three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals.
