South Africa vs India: “Unfortunately”, fans react as Rohit Sharma scraps upcoming test series

In a major blow to the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma has been dropped from the upcoming Triple Test series against South Africa. The tennis player injured his left hamstring during training in Mumbai and was replaced by Priyank Panchal. After the BCCI made the official announcement on Monday, fans took to Twitter to wish Rohit good luck in his recovery and also called the development “unfortunate”. One fan tweeted: “For someone who spoke so well about the work he’s done for the UK tour, the process he’s been through, the success he’s finally had, This must have been a heartbreaking development. It’s unfortunate for Rohit Sharma and also worrying that it’s the hamstring.”

Meanwhile, another fan wrote: “Wishing you a speedy recovery @ ImRo45 #Teamindia @BCC. I always needed you on the Test team but so sad to hear that you were eliminated by the test series vs. #SouthAfrica Good luck to @PKpanchal9, this is a great opportunity for him to prove himself what a great hitter he is”.
