With the limited over series al set to start the week, Ravi Shastri, the head coach of the side spoke about his presence in the limited over the team. Along with Rohit, Ishant Sharma is also expected to join the squad.
“It’ll be tough for Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma to play Border Gavaskar trophy if they fail to take the flight in the coming 4-5 days, maximum 26-27 November,” Shastri said.
“If you need to play in the Test series or any red-ball cricket, you’ve got to be on the fight in the next three or four days. If you aren’t then it is going to be tough” he added.
