Rohit Sharma’s injury controversy exposes BCCI’s lack of transparency

Leading Indian batsman Rohit Sharma’s hamstring injury has snowballed into a major controversy after he played the Mumbai Indians’s (MI) game against SunRisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL), just days after the national selectors ignored him from all three formats for this month’s Australia tour — apparently due to injury. Neither the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has so far explained as to why Sharma was excluded from the national Test, ODI, and T20 teams, nor has the chairman of selectors as the teams were announced through a press release, and there was no media interaction with the any BCCI official over the team selection.
