Indian captain Rohit Sharma, who retired hurt in the third T20I, said after the match that his body was doing “okay”. India won the third T20I against West Indies by seven wickets.
BCCI then confirmed through its official Twitter handle that Sharma had a back spasm and the medical team is monitoring the situation.
After the match ended with India winning by 7 wickets, Rohit talked about the injury in the post-match interview, “It’s okay at the moment. We’ve got a few days till the next game, hopefully it should be okay.”
Rohit started like a house on fire when he hit Alzarri Joseph for a four and a six but while trying to take a single, looked to have hurt himself. After Sharma’s absence, India batters showcased a power-hitting show as they easily chased 165 and won the match by seven wickets.
India have now taken 2-1 lead in the series but moreover the positive takeaway from the match is that Suryakumar Yadav finally clicked as an opener. The India batter played an epic knock, scoring a half-century. His 76 off 44 balls knock was laced with eight fours and four sixes. He was supported by handy innings from Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant that took India to a comfortable win.
