The extent of Rohit Sharma’s hamstring injury has intrigued batting great Sunil Gavaskar after the opener was seen practising Monday, hours after his omission from India’s tour of Australia on fitness grounds.

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit missed his team’s last two matches in the Indian Premier League currently underway in the United Arab Emirates with the injury.

The selectors omitted him from both the Test and limited-overs squads and the cricket board (BCCI) said its medical team would “continue to monitor the progress” without elaborating on the injury.

Hours later, the Mumbai Indians posted a video of their captain practising “in full flow” in Abu Dhabi, which baffled many.

Gavaskar duly expressed surprise to IPL broadcaster Star Sports after Monday’s match.

Indian team players usually don’t comment on team selection matters.

India and Australia will lock horns in a four-Test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in December-January, which will be preceded by six short-form internationals.

India have named Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul and Shubman Gill in the test squad and one of them could partner Mayank Agarwal at the top of the batting order.

Agarwal’s own fitness is not beyond doubt but the Board of Control for Cricket in India was characteristically taciturn about it when naming the opener in all three squads.

The 29-year old has missed Kings XI Punjab’s last two IPL matches and Gavaskar criticized the lack of clarity around Agarwal’s suspected leg injury.
