Team India experiences a serious fright before the T20 World Cup semifinal.

The right forearm of Team India skipper Rohit Sharma was hurt on Tuesday at the Adelaide Oval during a practise. Before their T20 World Cup semifinal match against England on Thursday, the Men in Blue are expected to take a significant knock as a result of Rohit Sharma’s injury.

During the optional training session, Rohit Sharma was hitting in the nets when a ball from throwdown expert Raghu struck him on the right forearm.

Rohit Sharma then stopped his practise session after being seen writhing in pain. His forearm was then wrapped in an ice pack.

Paddy Upton, a physical conditioning coach, then arrived on the field to look at the region where the ball had hit him. Following Paddy Upton’s guidance, Rohit Sharma attempted to bat for a limited length of time again, but quit when his damaged arm prevented him from striking the ball.

No official comment regarding the severity of Rohit Sharma’s injury has been issued, but the Indian captain’s absence from the semifinal match against England would be a major loss for the 2007 champions.

Notably, the cricket prodigy from Nagpur hasn’t lived up to the hype and has scored just 89 runs in five games at the T20 World Cup, with just one fifty against the Netherlands in India’s opening encounter.

Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of India, and retired opener Aakash Chopra have recently criticised Rohit Sharma for his poor performance in the T20 World Cup, accusing him of failing to give the squad a strong start against other teams.

“How he got out while playing the pull shot. He places it very well, score runs but also gets out. Especially when we talk about Australian grounds, the boundaries are bigger. He has a wide range of shots if he can control that particular shot. Even if he stays for 10 overs we can easily score 80-90 runs. He must play long,” Sunil Gavaskar told India Today.

“We all know Rohit Sharma’s class and hope he gets back to his form in the last two matches and scores runs. He only started that concept to make the most of the six powerplay overs. He is getting out while trying to do that,” the legendary batter further stated.

Even the former India opener Aakash Chopra was critical of Rohit Sharma’s performance in the premier T20I competition in Australia.

Additionally, Rohit Sharma has at least a few times been dismissed while using his signature pull shot, which has alarmed both the Indian cricket team’s supporters and the media.

The India captain has struggled to predict the bounce of the deliveries, making him vulnerable to short-pitched stuff, unlike prior occasions when he had the measure of Australian pitches.

Additionally, he has appeared very shaky at the top, and his string of poor performances has increased the pressure on players like Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav to perform.

“The runs did not come from Rohit Sharma’s bat once again. Let’s not fool ourselves. We are all Indian fans, when we talk about Babar and Temba not scoring runs, we should also say that Rohit is not making runs,” Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel.

“He has scored one fifty in five matches, that too was a scratchy fifty, where a catch was dropped as well, and it was a fifty against the Netherlands. Here also you got out, trying to pull a short ball, a fielder was standing in the deep, that’s a problem,” Aakash Chopra elaborated.

In the meantime, Rohit Sharma issued a strong comment over India’s semifinal matchup with England, cautioning his colleagues to adjust swiftly because the Three Lions enjoy playing an aggressive style of cricket.

“(About the clash against England) The key for us will be to adjust to the conditions as quickly as possible. We have played a game there recently but England will be a good challenge for us. They have been playing some good cricket. Two teams going at each other, it will be a great contest. We do not want to forget what has got us here, we just need to keep sticking to that and understand what each individual needs to do,” Rohit Sharma said after India’s triumph over Zimbabwe on Sunday.

“It is going to be a high-pressure game. We need to play well. If we do play well there, we have a good game ahead as well. You need to adjust quickly and plan accordingly.

They (fans) have been brilliant, coming and watching us. Almost everywhere we have gone, we have got full house. We expect nothing less in the semifinal. Hats off to them, on behalf of the team I want to thank them,” the Indian captain concluded.
