port of Spain. The third match of the ongoing T20 series between India and West Indies was played at Warner Park on Tuesday. Team India definitely won this match, but the tension of the team has increased regarding the upcoming matches. In fact, the captain of the team, Rohit Sharma suddenly groaned in pain while batting. The pain was so much that he had to leave the field and go out for treatment midway.
It is being told that there has been a strain in the back muscle of ‘Hitman’ Sharma. This incident happened in the field when he was batting on the individual score of 11 runs. Sharma first hit a six off a ball by Alzarri Joseph. After this, he also hit a four in the same over. After hitting two big shots in the field, he took a single off the next ball, but in the meantime, suddenly his back started to hurt.
Seeing Sharma’s growing pain, Indian team physio Kamlesh went to the field and treated him. Despite this, however, he did not get any relief. Seeing Sharma’s growing pain, it was decided to take him off the field. As of now, it is not clearly known whether there has been a strain in his muscle or there is something else. Apart from this, there is a doubt whether he will participate in the next two matches or not.
The fourth and fifth matches of the ongoing five-match T20 series between India and West Indies will be played on August 6 and 7 respectively at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Florida.
