India Vs South Africa | Should We Cancel South Africa Tour?: Aakash Chopra On Injury Concerns In Team India


New Delhi: Team India is slated to play a three-match Test series in South Africa, starting with the Boxing Day Test from 26th December. Senior opener Rohit Sharma was given the vice-captaincy of India’s Test team in place of Ajinkya Rahane, but now the Mumbai batter has been ruled out of the Test series due to hamstring injury.

Expressing concern over Rohit’s injury, former India cricketer and famous commentator Aakash Chopa questioned whether India’s tour of South Africa should be cancelled. Team India is already troubled by the injury of some important players and in such situation, senior player Rohit’s sudden exit from the Test series is a big blow for the team.

“Ravindra Jadeja unavailable, Axar Patel unavailable, Rahul Chahar unavailable, you don’t have Shubman Gill and now they are saying that Rohit Sharma is also not there. I mean what is happening? Should we cancel the South Africa tour?” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.

Aakash Chopra said Rohit Sharma is going to be a huge miss for India in the series.

“Rohit Sharma is going to be a huge miss. If his tour is in doubt, India’s chances are looking in doubt because who was your best Test batter in 2021. Why did you do well in England – Rohit was there with Rahul. Rohit has started loving Test cricket and he is enjoying leaving or defending,” Chopra said.

The cricketer-turned-commentator pointed out problems in the Indian team right now due to the injuries.

“There are multi-fold problems. Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal had opened just now, KL Rahul was injured. I met KL Rahul recently and he said that he will be fine. You will see Mayank Agarwal opening along with him but who will be the third opener now?

“We were saying that it has become a story of four or five openers and here Mayank Agarwal has become the second opener and KL Rahul the first. And we have reached the stage when Mayank Agarwal made his debut, in a space of few weeks. The Indian team becomes significantly weak,” Chopra said.
