Rohit Sharma hit by a delivery from Jasprit Bumrah on Day 1 of India’s tour match against Leicestershire
It was a great moment for Indian cricket fans as they saw two Indian stars face each other in the team’s tour match against Leicestershire XI. Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Prasidh Krishna bowled for Leicestershire against the likes of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill who opened the batting for India in the tour match. Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara will also play for the hosts against the Indian team as Rahul Dravid’s wards warm-up for the renewed Test match against England.
Rohit Sharma managed to score 25 runs before running over a pull shot to get to Roman Walker.
But before that, Rohit was in a difficult position, as he was hit by a Bumrah in-cutter.
The captain of the Indian Test was in discomfort when the ball hit him in the locker room after he moved sharply from length. Rohit was opened by the movement and had to spend some time on the ground after being hit by the delivery.

India will take on England in the July 1 rematch at Edgbaston. The Indians lead the series 2-1 and would like to win or draw this match to win their first Test series in England since 2007.
India has since lost 3 Test series in England.
The fifth Test match of the India tournament last year was canceled due to an outbreak of Covid in the Indian camp.
