Indian team physio Kamlesh came to the ground to attend Rohit. After a few minutes of consultation, Rohit retired hurt, which seems to be a precautionary decision as no statement has been issued by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
It is not known whether the injury was more than a muscle strain. If the injury is severe, the Indian captain could be ruled out of the next two matches in Florida on August 6 and 7. However, there is a long gap before the fourth match so it is expected that he will play all the matches.
Earlier, West Indies scored 164 for 5 with opener Kyle Myers’ half-century. Myers struck a 50-ball 73 with eight fours and four sixes, besides putting on 57 for the first wicket with Brandon King (20) and 50 for the second wicket with captain Nicholas Pooran (23). Bhuvneshwar Kumar was India’s most successful bowler, taking two wickets for 35 runs. Hardik Pandya, while bowling economical, took one wicket for just 19 runs in four overs. Avesh Khan once again proved to be extremely expensive. He conceded 47 runs in three overs while he did not get any success.
