Rohit Sharma hit by a delivery from Jasprit Bumrah on day one of the Indian Tour game against Leicestershire
It was an incredible moment for Indian cricket fans as they saw two Indian stars go head-to-head in the team’s tour match against Leicestershire XI. Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna bowled for Leicestershire against Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill who opened batting for India in the tour match. Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara will also feature for the hosts against the Indian side as Rahul Dravid’s quarters warm up for the rescheduled Test match against England.
Rohit Sharma managed to score 25 points, before going past a pulling shot to get out to Roman Walker.
But before that, Rohit was in a tough spot as he was tested by a Bumrah in-cutter.
The Indian Test captain was uncomfortable when the ball hit him in the groin area, after suddenly moving from the length. Rohit was opened up by the move and had to spend some time on the ground after being hit by the delivery.

India will face England in the revamped Test on July 1 at Edgbaston. The Indians lead the series 2-1 and would like to win or draw to win their first England Test series since 2007.
India have lost 3 Test rounds to England since then.
The fifth test match of the Indian tour last year was canceled due to a Covid outbreak in the Indian camp.
