Who could replace Rohit?
In case the BCCI confirms the news of Rohit’s injury, team India will have to bring in either Deepak Hooda or Dinesh Karthik in the Playing XI. Deepak Hooda and Rishabh Pant (already in the team for Zimbabwe clash) could be drafted in as openers as they both have previously been used in that slot. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are other alternative options, but the management wont risk changing the winning formula.
Indian T20 World Cup squad:
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik
