Rohit Sharma injury : After a tremendous closely fought India vs England five-match T20I series, India and England are all set to face each other in a three-match ODI series at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Just like the last 3 T20Is in Ahmedabad, all the three ODI games will be played behind closed doors. It is expected to be a high-voltage ODI series between two heavyweight white-ball teams as the conditions will mostly suit the batsmen which also make a case for some high-scoring encounters.
England captain Eoin Morgan won yet another toss and elected to field first against India in the first ODI in Pune. India’s experienced opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan looked very much tentative as the scorecard read 39 for no loss after 10 overs. England speedster Mark Wood who troubled the Indian batsmen a lot with his extra pace during the T20I series and once again the pacer’s fierce 148 kmph delivery hit Rohit on the elbow during the 5th over of the match. After being hit by the speeding ball, Rohit was seen in a lot of pain and also received some medical attention.
