Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had announced that Rohit Sharma will miss the three-match Test series in South Africa due to a left hamstring injury sustained during a training session in Mumbai.

Rohit Sharma will take about a month to recover from his hamstring injury. The three-match ODI series starts on January 19 at Boland Park, Paarl. The second ODI will be played at the same venue on January 21 while the third and final match of the series will be played on January 23 at Newlands in Cape Town.

Rohit was named as India’s white-ball captain and elevated as the vice-captain in Tests on December 8. India are slated to play three Tests and as many ODIs in South Africa. The tour begins with the first Test on December 26.
