Rohit Sharma ruled out of from ODI and Test against NZ

India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma was on Monday ruled out of the impending ODI and Test series against New Zealand after incurring a calf injury in the fifth and final T20 International against the Black Caps on Sunday in Mount Maunganui.

Rohit retired hurt after scoring 60 off 41 balls, his 25th fifty-plus score in the format (the most by a player), after he pulled his calf muscle while running between the wickets during India’s 84-run second-wicket partnership.

“He is out of the tour,” a top BCCI source told PTI on conditions on anonymity. India are set to play three ODIs, starting Wednesday, and two Tests after that.
