Rohit will be next seen in action representing the Indian team during the four-match away Test series in Australia. The 33-year-old has been rested for the ODI and T20I series, due to concerns over the fitness of the cricketer. Skipper Virat Kohli will be returning home after the first Test.
Rohit was last seen representing defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) during the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). MI defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) by five wickets in the final of the cash-rich league, winning the title for the fifth time.
The Mumbai-based franchise is further only the second team in the tournament after rivals Chennai Super Kings (CSK), to win the league in two consecutive years.
Rohit was the highest run-scorer in the final, smashing 68 runs off 51 deliveries as his side chased down a target of 157 runs with eight balls to spare. The 33-year-old’s knock comprised of five boundaries and four sixes.
