Wed 30 Dec 2020, 21:30:54

India star Rohit Sharma has joined the Indian team here after completing his two-week quarantine in Sydney, strengthening the visitors who are in a commanding position after beating Australia in a comprehensive way in the Boxing Day Test.

After recording their lowest Test total (36/9) in the pink-ball, the Indian team, led by stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane, staged a remarkable turnaround to humble Australia by eights wickets and level the four-Test series at the MCG. The third Test at the SCG is scheduled to start from January 7.

"So how was your quarantine, my friend," chief coach Ravi Shastri was heard asking Rohit in a video posted by BCCI. Rohit replied by saying he's feeling younger.

In the video, Rohit can be seen exchanging greetings with Cheteshwar Pujara, Umesh Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj and batting coach Vikram Rathour.

Shastri said the medical team will look at how the player is physically after completing his quarantine before a call is taken on his inclusion in the playing XI for the third Test against Australia in Sydney.

"We will have a chat with him to see where he is placed physically because he has been in quarantine for the last couple of weeks. We'll also see how he feels before we take the call," Shastri had said in the post-match press conference after India's win on Tuesday.
