IND vs SA LIVEWill Rohit Sharma be fit? Rohit has been doing his rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) but it could still take some time for the Indian captain to regain full fitness.

Earlier, the selection meeting was supposed to be held just after Vijay Hazare Trophy but it has been pushed back only to ensure that Rohit gets a chance to pass the fitness test.

In case Rohit is not fit in time for the ODIs, KL Rahul will be leading India for the first time in a bilateral series.

“It could well happen that Rohit is not fit by the time of selection cut-off but then with the first ODI still three weeks away, he could get enough time to be with the team and regain full fitness closer to the date.

“In that case, he can be selected subject to fitness. These are things that chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma needs to check,” the official said.

Jadeja and Axar’s unavailability has opened the door for R Ashwin to make an ODI comeback after four years.

“It has been learnt that Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel are unavailable for selection. About Rohit, a call will be taken closer to the selection date,” a senior BCCI official was quoted by BCCI.

India ODI Team SelectionWho will make the cut? As of now, Venkatesh Iyer and Ruturaj Gaikwad are the two youngsters who will be part of the ODI squad on the basis of their performance in Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Himachal Pradesh’s Vijay Hazare win hero – Rishi Dhawan will pose tough challenge to Venkatesh Iyer’s name.

M Shahrukh Khan’s name, who has impressed one and all as a finisher during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, might come up for discussion.

It needs to be seen whether selectors pick him for this tour or keep him ready for the home series against Sri Lanka and West Indies as a T20 option.

Shikhar Dhawan, the veteran opener despite his poor run of form in the domestic event, might be retained.
