A media release issued by the BCCI said: “Rohit Sharma was hit on the left side of his abdomen while batting in the nets today. The BCCI medical team has confirmed that he is fit and available for the first T20I after assessment of his injury.”

Rohit, who was taking throwdowns from batting coach Vikram Rathour and Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Seneviratne at the nets, left the practice session midway after he was hit and didn’t return to bat.
