Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma on Tuesday made his way back to the cricket pitch after being out of action due to a hamstring tear.

Rohit returned to action in Mumbai Indians’ match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and elected to field first against Mumbai Indians. At the time of toss, Rohit was asked whether everything is fit and fine with him?

To this, Rohit replied: “Looks like I’m fit and fine.”.

Having raised quite a few eyebrows by ignoring Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma for the upcoming tour of Australia citing a hamstring injury, the BCCI medical team had assessed India’s limited-overs deputy on Sunday to take a final call on whether or not he is good to be a part of the series which gets underway on November 27.

Earlier, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had said he wanted Rohit to tread cautiously while deciding on competing for his IPL team Mumbai Indians in the playoffs as he risks aggravating the hamstring tear.

The BCCI president said that the board will do everything possible to get an “asset like Rohit” back in the park as that’s their job. Mumbai are scheduled to take on Delhi Capitals on Thursday in the playoffs.

However on a positive note, the BCCI president said that Ishant Sharma’s recovery from a side strain is going well and he “expects” the senior speedster to be available for the Tests against Australia, starting mid-December.
