Rohit Sharma has completed his rehabilitation process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and is now clinically fit. In a statement released, the BCCI said, “He has been rehabilitating and training at NCA since 19th November following a high-grade left hamstring injury suffered during the Indian Premier League (IPL).”

“The NCA medical Team was satisfied with the physical fitness of Sharma after assessing him on different metrics that tested his skills related to batting, fielding and running between the wickets.”

Sharma’s physical fitness has been satisfactory, however, he will be required to continue work on his endurance.

He has been given a detailed programme to follow for the duration of the two weeks he will be quarantined for.
