Rohit rested for WI series with an eye on Lanka Tests
He may have had a dry spell in Test cricket but Rohit Sharma figures big time in skipper Virat Kohli's scheme of things which is why the senior opener was rested for India's tour of West Indies. If top BCCI sources are to be believed, Rohit can make a comeback into the Test side against Sri Lanka next month as one middle-order slot is still up for grabs. Karun Nair, who replaced an injured Rohit has done precious little after his triple hundred against England and there are serious question mark on whether he can hold onto his Test place for the Sri Lankan Test series. On the other hand, Rohit had scored three consecutive fifties in his last three Test appearances.
