Mumbai Indians on Thursday shared a glimpse of Rohit Sharma’s training session in which the batsman can be seen getting into rhythm as he prepares for the much-anticipated upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
In a bid to defend the title, Sharma is leaving no stone unturned and putting in all his efforts to make the best possible comeback after the long coronavirus-enforced break. In the video posted by Mumbai Indians on Twitter, Sharma can be seen smashing the bowlers, indicating that the batsman is in fine form.
