Cricket India vs West Indies 4th T20I: Is Rohit Sharma Playing Today? Here’s the update

In a nervy run-chase of 165 runs during the 3rd T20I against West Indies, India suffered a massive blow as their skipper Rohit Sharma walked off the field retired out after facing some issue in his back. Before getting retired hurt, the senior opener had scored 11 runs off 5 balls that included a six and a four. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed that the captain has sustained back spasm, however, after the game, Rohit himself mentioned that he should be fine for the next game as he will get some days rest. The recent update is that Rohit Sharma is absolutely fit and available for selection in this important 4th T20I against West Indies on Saturday.

The Indian skipper contributed with a brilliant innings of 64 runs off 44 balls that included as many as 7 fours and 2 sixes in the first T20I encounter against West Indies.

India are very much unlikely to tinker with their winning combination from the previous game. However, right-arm seamer Harshal Patel might replace Avesh Khan, only if the former is completely fit and available.
