As the anticipation mounts for the upcoming India-Pakistan clash in the T20 World Cup, concerns arise over the safety of the pitch at Nassau County following Rohit Sharma’s injury during India’s opening match against Ireland.

Rohit Sharma, India’s captain, sustained a bruised bicep after being struck by a delivery from Ireland’s Josh Little. While the injury is deemed not serious, Rohit had to retire hurt after scoring a half-century due to discomfort caused by the unexpected rise of the delivery.

Despite Rohit’s expected recovery in time for the crucial match against Pakistan, attention has shifted to the condition of the pitch, which has raised significant safety apprehensions among players and officials alike.

A senior BCCI source provided reassurance regarding Rohit’s injury, affirming that it is not severe and expressing confidence in his participation in the forthcoming matches, including the high-stakes encounter against Pakistan.

However, the focus remains on addressing the concerns surrounding pitch safety, ensuring the well-being of players as they gear up for one of cricket’s most eagerly anticipated fixtures.
