Rohit Sharma, India cricket team batsman, is expected to be out of action for at least 10 to 12 weeks as he is likely to undergo surgery in London next week after consultation with a specialist.
The right-handed batsman sustained an injury to his right upper quadriceps tendon during the fifth One-Day International (ODI) against New Zealand in Vizag. It was earlier reported that he might be ruled out for six to eight weeks, but the latest update from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) suggests a longer lay-off.
"He will travel to London early next week for specialist consultation with a possibility to undergo surgery, as a result of which, he is expected to miss at least 10 to 12 weeks of cricket, " BCCI confirmed in its media advisory.
"The BCCI medical team will extend all support to Rohit Sharma, to regain full fitness and further contribute to Indian Cricket," the press release added.
Rohit wasn't included in the 15-member squad announced for the first two Tests against England and it appears unlikely that he will be part of the squad for the remainder of the series as well.
Rohit, who played in all three Tests against New Zealand in the recently-concluded series, has been in and out of the side in the longer format since making his debut in November 2013.
After starting out with back-to-back centuries against West Indies, he struggled for a couple of years with patchy form. With Virat Kohli adopting the ploy of playing with five frontline bowlers, Rohit's chances to make it to the starting XI were further dented. However, against New Zealand, he shined with the bat after they decided to play him at No 6. He responded by stroking 238 runs in five innings, at an average of 79.33
