Rohit Sharma was unsure whether he would need surgery a few weeks back with BCCI medical stuff conferring with specialists on the extent of the damage he had suffered during the final game of the ODI series against New Zealand. In that, Sharma had hurt himself while trying to complete a run and dragging his thigh across the surface in a desperate attempt at staying not out.
The injury was further aggravated with the opening batsman continuing with his knock and scoring 70 in what proved to be a valuable knock in India’s win.
Now, Rohit has undergone successful surgery in London on his right upper quadriceps tendon with the recovery process keeping him out for three months at least.
The flashy limited overs batsman took to Twitter to give the fans an update on his injury and his medical condition since he last spoke at an event in Mumbai.
In the tweet, he said, “All went well. Thank you for your good wishes. Can’t wait to be back at it.”

BCCI in their last update on Rohit’s condition had said that the batsman will travel to London but the requirement of surgery was never confirmed. “He will travel to London early next week for specialist consultation with a possibility to undergo surgery,” is what the statement had said.

The surgery and the recovery process effectively rules Rohit out of the England series entirely after he wasn’t picked for the Test squad and is unlikely to be fit for the limited over matches that begin on January 15 comprising five ODIs and three T20s.
