'Vast Difference' Between Captaincy of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma: Gautam Gambhir

Rohit and Ishant have been the frontrunners in all recent Indian successes in the red-ball format of the game and are now undergoing rehabilitation for their respective injuries at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Indian head coach Ravi Shastri recently gave an update about Rohit and Ishant.

"If you need to play in the Test series or any red-ball cricket, you've got to be on the flight in the next three or four days. Otherwise, it's going to be tough", said Shastri. According to ESPNCricinfo, NCA can clear him for travel by December 8 at the earliest and then he will have to serve the mandatory 14-day quarantine. Rohit Sharma has been vital in the Indian cricket team top-order and his partnership with Shikhar Dhawan has helped India establish a level of dominance against Australia where they have not lost only one series against them in the last three years. If need be, the visitors can also pick from their reserve bowlers - Kartik Tyagi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Ishan Porel. Shreyas Iyer is already in Australia for the limited-overs series. The team has a back-up opener in KL Rahul, but given Rohit's quality, experience and a solid backfoot game, the Aussies might have a considerable upper hand if the batsman doesn't make it.

As per several reports, their chances of featuring in the final two Tests also remain bleak.

India will be without skipper Virat Kohli after the first Test as he will return to the country to be there for the birth of his first child. "Once he fully recovers and gains sufficient match fitness, he will be added to India's Test squad".

"He (Rohit) was never going to play the white-ball leg of the tour, we needed to know how long he needed to rest, but you can't afford a long period of rest. And in that case, Rohit Sharma is a little ahead", Patel said on the Star Sports Cricket Connected show.

Saying that runs on the board in the first innings would be crucial, Shastri added that if it could be ticked, team India had the bowlers who can trouble the very best batsmen across any format of the game.
