Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir feeling that opening batsman Rohit Sharma is missing the Test series against South Africa is a “massive blow” to the visitors before the tour. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed on Monday that Rohit has been ruled out in the three-match Test series against South Africa due to a thigh muscle problem. “It’s a big blow for India and the way he has batted in England he would love to go to South Africa as he would not want to miss a Test while he was in good shape. He is just as “a vice-captain has been appointed, so it’s a massive blow,” Gambhir told ANI.

Priyank Panchal replaced Rohit Sharma in the Test squad.

“Great opportunity for young people to seize this opportunity and make the country proud,” Gambhir added.


Rohit, who was recently appointed as the team’s vice-captain, suffered a left thigh muscle injury during his training session in Mumbai on Sunday.

India’s group for South Africa tests: Virat Kohli (captain), Priyank Panchal, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Jayant Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohd. Shami, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj.
