New dad Rohit Sharma to rejoin India squad after Sydney Test

New dad Rohit Sharma to rejoin India squad after Sydney Test

In Rohit's absence, India may include Hardik Pandya, who joined the squad ahead of the third Test, or go in with two spinners depending on the nature of the SCG wicket.

Rohit opened up about his wife Ritika's pregnancy in a chat with former Australia captain Michael Clarke in a promotional video for Hublot. Though he was dropped by Peter Siddle at the very early stage of his innings, since then, he batted with utmost grit and determination. This might tempt the management to restore Vihari to his favoured middle order slot in place of Rohit Sharma.

He was even distracted by Aaron Finch and Tim Paine with banter in the middle.

"It would've been great to have him (Rohit) around".

In all likelihood, Rohit Sharma will miss the final Test, as he will be flying back to India, to share the joy with his wife Ritika. BCCI confirmed that although 31-year-old will miss India's fourth Test, he will be back in time for the ODI series.

Rohit will join the ODI squad on the 8th of January 2019, when the team begins their preparation for the ODI series starting 12th January. "But what awaits him is far bigger and more important", the source said.

A statement on Twitter added: "The BCCI congratulates Rohit on the beginning of a new chapter in his life". They think I am irresponsible, obviously in a amusing way. He was recently reinstated in the Indian Test team, for the four match Test series against Australia down under.
