Team India was hit as Rohit Sharma and Cheteswar Puhala did not play on the fifth day of the fourth match against England at Kennington Oval in London. 34-year-old Rohit is sitting because he feels uncomfortable with his left knee.

Puhara’s work in the game is just as good. The top batter complained of pain in his left ankle, so team management did not risk taking him to the field. Rohit and Pujara are currently under the supervision of the Cricket Management Committee of the Indian (BCCI) medical team. It is not yet known if they can pass the fifth and final test.
