CSK vs MI in IPL 2021: Good news for Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma likely to return against KKR: India vice-captain Rohit Sharma opted out of Mumbai Indians’
opening match of the second phase of Indian Premier League, which resumed on Sunday, due to a knee niggle he had sustained during the recent England tour.

Rohit had struck a century in the second innings of the fourth Test at the Oval but did not take the field when England batted.

“The message from the physio is ‘assess every minute, don’t look too far ahead’,” Rohit had said after the Oval Test.
