India New Test Captain – Once Virat Kohli left the test captaincy, it was clear that Rohit would be named the Test captain. The only doubt was his fitness.
Owing to Rohit’s struggle with persistent hamstring injury and questionable fitness few doubts were raised on his name. But all FITNESS Coaches at NCA have given THUMBS UP to Rohit’s fitness. After spending almost two months at NCA, Rohit has not only reduced his weight considerably but has also looked super-agile during the ongoing series vs the West Indies.
“I’ve been off for a while and didn’t play for two months. I was back home, though, and hitting balls and have also worked hard on my fitness” Rohit Sharma said after one of the match against the West Indies.
