Rohit’s fitness must have obviously given some tension to Mumbai. Five-time champions Mumbai’s first match is on Sunday, April 2, where they will face Royal Challengers Bangalore. Now whether Rohit will be fit for this or not, it is awaited. It has been claimed in the report that the captain of Mumbai is expected to recover by Sunday.
Rohit unfit, then why not vice-captain?
Now the answer has been found as to why Rohit did not reach the photoshoot. Despite this, the question arises that if he was not well, could Mumbai not have sent their vice-captain (probably Suryakumar Yadav). Sunrisers Hyderabad also handed over this responsibility to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the absence of Aiden Markram, who will take charge of the team in the first match. Now it is not clear whether Rohit Sharma was already ill or his health deteriorated after reaching Ahmedabad for a photo shoot.
