The India captain was hit on his left abdomen during a net session

India captain Rohit Sharma, who was hit on his left abdomen during a net session, has been declared “fit and available” for the first T20I against Bangladesh on Sunday.

Rohit, who will lead India in the three-match series in Virat Kohli’s absence, received the blow early into the net session while taking throwdowns. After a few throwdowns, one sharp delivery hit Rohit on the inside region of his left thigh. He immediately left the nets.

“Rohit Sharma was hit on the left side of his abdomen while batting in the nets today. The BCCI medical team has confirmed that he is fit and available for the first T20 after assessment of his injury,” a BCCI statement said.
